“I am delighted to be a Trustee of the Heart of England Forest, helping to deliver Felix Dennis’s dream of establishing a 30,000 acre forest here in the heart of the country. I am drawn to the aims of the Heart of England Forest on two levels: one a very personal, community level which provides a fantastic natural resource and environment for local people to enjoy; and secondly on a more strategic level whereby the expanded forest will help to counteract the devastating effects of climate change”.
