The National Trust AGM will take place at 10.30am on Saturday 8 November at STEAM, the Museum of the Great Western Railway, Swindon. There are 24 people standing for seven vacancies on the Trust council. National Trust members can vote for up to seven candidates. Whilst it is up to Countryside Alliance members, who are also members of the National Trust, how they use their vote, we very much hope they will read the candidates’ CVs carefully and vote for rural minded people. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Alliance’s political team on 020 7840 9260.

On Monday 27th October 2014 we will be holding a reception at Parliament to honour the Champions of our Fishing 4 Schools scheme. Youngsters from over 20 schools will descend on Westminster for tea and medals, to be handed out by our Chairman, Kate Hoey MP, and the course Director, Charles Jardine.The teenagers, aged between 14-16, have all completed the short angling course and have been judged by their teachers to have gained the most from the scheme, whether in confidence, positive outlook or ability to socialise. We'll bring you photographs of the event after Monday and look forward to seeing supportive Parliamentarians at the event, including the MPs of some of the schoolchildren.
