A reception to celebrate the 30th birthday of The Cheshire Landscape Trust was hosted by Sir William and Lady Elizabeth Bromley Davenport at Capesthorne Hall.

Supporters of the Trust and friends of the Bromley Davenports gathered at the country house in Siddington, near Macclesfield, to toast the anniversary and listen to guest speakers including John Darlington, North West Regional Director of the National Trust.

Helen Carey OBE DL, Chairman of the Landscape Trust said:We cant take landscape for granted, it has to be cherished and looked after. Sometimes we only appreciate its value when it is no longer there and often we forget that landscape has a social and economic value as well as environmental.The Trust has declared that 30 is our magic number.

By the end of 2012 they hope to have raised 30,000 to create 30 new orchards, support 30 school projects, 30 new tree wardens and launch 30 new community planting exercises.
