New CRT Patron
Following the amazing year of silver jubilee celebrations, the wonderful, Dame Judi Dench has agreed to become the Official CRT Patron. What an amazing start to 2019!
Robin Page: “I am delighted that Dame Judi Dench has accepted the role of Patron for the Countryside Restoration Trust. She is and inspiration to all and follows in the footsteps of the great David Shepherd. Welcome Dame Judi and thank you so much for supporting the living countryside we all love”.
Dame Judi Dench: “The CRT is the pioneering charity in wildlife friendly farming and the biggest tribute to its success is the fact that so many other organisations have followed in its footsteps. I have been privileged to visit several of the Trust’s farms and the work being done is tremendous. We look to the future as farming, the countryside and Britain’s wildlife needs the pioneering work of the CRT more than ever before.”
New CRT Logo
Along with this, we have been working on revitalising the logo and the image of the CRT – but still keeping the beloved lark as the centrepiece. We want it to be full of the wonderful colours that you can see in the natural world around you. We want it to reflect the vibrant future of the Trust going forward!
RP said: “I am so happy with the refreshed logo. The skylark is our guiding spirit – the sound of a healthy countryside. The Skylark has inspired us for twenty five years – we are now following the skylark into the next twenty-five”.
We want to reach out to younger people with families and encourage them to support the work of the CRT. To do that, we feel this bright new branding will catch their attention! This change will be applied across the Trust throughout 2019!
With our new Turnastone Court Farm Education Centre and Lodge in Herefordshire, and the upcoming implementation of new educations officers for our Mayfields and Pierrepont farms as well as the ongoing visits with local schools across the country, 2019 is a year to engage with the next generation!
Keep your eyes peeled for the latest Lark magazine that will be dropping through your doors around Easter time! This new look edition of The Lark of the will still feature great articles reflecting projects that the CRT are involved with, updates from the farmers and CRT headquarters. There is also a new feature in which we ask our CRT Friends to get involved with!
What an exciting 26th year of the CRT it is turning out to be!
