Description

North West England Members' Gathering

On Saturday we will have a full afternoon of talks with a focus on the Trust's lease of Glenridding Common.

We will be welcomed by Peter Pearson, the Chair of the John Muir Trust followed by Pete Barron, the Trust's Lake District Ranger, who will introduce us to Glenridding Common.

There will be plenty of time to discuss opportunities for members to engage on the ground in the coming years and discussions will continue over tea and biscuits.

The day will finish with a talk by Mike Innerdale, Assistant Director (North West) at the National Trust.

Join us for dinner? There is also the option to join us for a pub dinner on Saturday evening so we can continue the day's discussions. Please let is know when booking you ticket.

On Sunday we will have the opportunity to visit Glenridding and will be given a guided tour of the site by Pete Barron.

Members are free to join both days or just one day. Tickets are free but we ask you book in advance so we have an idea of numbers.
