Tea and Talk, Wednesday, 20 June.

Our next Afternoon Tea and Talk in the gorgeous surroundings of Lodge Park is taking place on Wednesday 20 June. This month's guest speaker is the Chief Executive of the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, Roger Mortlock.

The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust are one of our key partners. We jointly own and manage the breathtakingly beautiful Crickley Hill with the GWT. With lots planned over the next few years, Crickley has an exciting future ahead. Roger will also be explaining more about their wildlife projects including their most ambitious landscape project to date - Living Landscapes. The project aims to link fragmented habitats together across the county.

What is a Living Landscape?

The GWT are working to transform the environment we live in: restoring, recreating and reconnecting wildlife-rich spaces in rural and urban areas by working in partnership with local communities, landowners, schools and businesses.

Their nature reserves provide great protection for wildlife, they believe that nature reserves on their own, are not large enough to support stable and healthy populations over long periods of time.

A living landscape is not just a big nature reserve, but a mosaic of reserves, farmland, amenity land and built-up areas managed in such a way that wildlife and people can share it and which continues to function ecologically.

To celebrate and recognise our partnership with the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, we're offering all staff and volunteers the opportunity to purchase tickets at the discounted price of £20 (normal price £28). Tickets include Roger's talk, a traditional afternoon tea served by the fireside on vintage crockery and the opportunity to have your questions answered by Roger.

Tickets are limited and can be booked directly with the team at Lodge Park via email lodgepark@nationaltrust.org.uk
