75th anniversary partner event (2/2/11)

We held a special 75th anniversary event this evening for our national
'partners' - that's other charities, companies, politicians, civil
servants and others who we work closely with. About 200 people
attended, representing about 80 different organisations - many from
the health or environment world. Both our current President, Julia
Bradbury, and one of our previous Presidents, Janet Street Porter,

Not far away from our office, where the event was held, MPs were
debating the proposals to sell-off forestry land without access
safeguards being in place. Having spent part of the day meeting with
MPs to express our concerns, it strikes me how much we need to work
closely with others over the current threats to access and footpaths,
and walking promotion work.
I'd be interested to hear if any Areas have organised partner events.
They're a good way to build alliances and do some gentle lobbying.
