New President for CPRE

CPRE = Council for the Protection of Rural England.

I would like to think this is a good thing. It takes someone from the outside to indicate to those of us on the inside - the residents of England in general - just what they /we have that is worth preserving.

Bill Bryson, an American who lives in Norfolk, has told the BBC: "You're extremely lucky to have such beautiful countryside in this country. One of the glories of Britain is the British landscape".
"Almost everybody who lives in this country loves to go out into the countryside and just be there and walk around in it and enjoy the views and enjoy all that greenery and fresh air, and it's really important that this generation does all it can to preserve that."

He gets my vote.
