Just what is the role of the rural estate?

Come to St John’s Church Centre, Rowlands Castle on Friday 12 April to discover the answer. At the turn of the 21st century the landscape, the economy and the socio-economics of the South Downs was defined to a large degree by the rural estates. James Cooper, Director of the Stansted Park Foundation will be talking on the impact such estates have had on our past, present and future.

The South Downs Society – your National Park Society – will be presenting this event which is sponsored by the Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust. Starting at 7 p.m., when refreshments will be served, you will gain a valuable insight to the management of the countryside we are so privileged to enjoy.

Tickets, just £5 each to include light refreshments, can be purchased in advance from either Robert Self (02392 484412) or Penny Murray (02392 486007) and the South Downs Society, 01798 875073. Alternatively Rowlands Castle Parish Clerk has tickets available from the Parish Council office. 25 March 2013
