Stunning limestone pavements, ancient woodlands, intimate orchards and meadows and an impressive coastline make Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty one of England's finest landscapes. The work of the AONB Partnership aims to conserve and enhance this extraordinary place now and for the future.
New Chair for the Landscape Trust
June 21st, 2016
The Arnside/Silverdale Landscape Trust has a new chair. Welcome to Fiona Allan!
Fiona is an AONB resident – living in Warton – and has been a member of the Landscape Trust for many years. Her career started in the NHS – as an Occupational Therapist, and later as a service manager. She then transferred into academia and retired as a Principal Lecturer from the University of Cumbria a few years ago. Fiona joined the Landscape Trust Board as a Trustee in 2013, during which time she has helped to write administration documents as required by the Charities Commission.
Fiona says: ‘I am learning all the time about the AONB, about the Trust and particularly about the very special area where the Trust operates. We have well over a thousand members, three reserves and a fantastic group of knowledgeable and skilled people who offer their time to the Trust on a regular basis. It is only because of the support they offer that I was happy to accept nomination as Chairman. I look forward to working with this team and watching the Trust continue to go from strength to strength.’
