New CPRE President

My toolkit book featured a quote from Bill Bryson when he became President of the CPRE, used with permission.

A lot of houses have Emma Bridgewater designed pottery in them. She is about to be announced as the new President of the CPRE: an organisation that has featured on this blog many times over the years. In this Telegraph interview piece she describes some aspects of her views on the Rural landscape.

It is a small country. It is all of our backyards. With increasing numbers of us living in cities then the need to be able to walk out into unspoilt country is all the more crystal clear.
The population is going up - we really, really must be very, very intelligent about how we develop and be mindful of the irreversible nature of development. We will be hated by our grandchildren if we get this wrong.
