Chalk, Cherries and Chairs project

Those of you who regularly peruse our website may remember that we were advertising for a Community Ranger to help deliver on a new and exciting project called Chalk, Cherries and Chairs. This five-year Landscape Partnership Scheme, overseen by our friends at the Chilterns Conservation Board, is working towards a vision of “A healthy, resilient, connected landscape; with its unique natural, historical and cultural heritage cherished by present and future generations”.

Young Roots update

Since the end of the practical workshops and installations in 2017 there has been a maintenance session carried out annually by our Ranger team with the help of a variety of young people. The first year one of our Rangers did a tour of the eight sites with one of the budding artists who helped paint the masterpieces originally.
