CHESHIRE Landscape Trust has announced the appointment of Lady Bromley-Davenport as its new president.
She follows in the footsteps of the Duke of Westminster, who was the trust’s president for 30 years from its launch in 1981.
Since its formation the trust has planted 100,000 trees and shrubs, given apple trees to establish more than 200 community orchards and developed a tree warden network.
Lady Bromley-Davenport, a renowned artist, was born in New Jersey but has lived in Cheshire since the 1960s.
She said: “I was delighted to be asked to become president of the Cheshire Landscape Trust. I have known of the trust for a number of years and have always been impressed by the energy and commitment of the staff and its many volunteers who have done so much to enhance and protect the landscape of Cheshire.”
Trust chairman Helen Carey said: “We are very pleased Lady Bromley-Davenport has joined our team and look forward to working with her in the future. Her enthusiasm and support for the work of the trust in these challenging times is most encouraging.”
