A visit to Grantham to the Woodland Trust

It was a long day yesterday – I drove up to Grantham to the Woodland Trust HQ with Dave Rickwood – the Fingle Wood site manager. The round trip was 6 miles short of 500 miles! The purpose of the trip was to give a presentation to Woodland Trust staff on Fingle Woods, the partnership between the WT and the NT and progress to date. There were around 60 people in the audience and lots of enthusiasm. Also met Becky Speight, the WT CEO for a quick chat too. Here are a few photos of their new  (ish) HQ – interestingly designed by the same architects that designed and built the NT HQ in Swindon – Heelis.
