Campaigning for the Norfolk Countryside

With well over 1,000 members in the county, Norfolk is one of the healthiest branches of The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) demonstrating how much the protection of our local countryside is something that many people in Norfolk are concerned about.

CPRE have campaigned hard alongside us by gathering evidence and publicising the threat to Guestwick and the surrounding countryside of industrial scale development.

They work to protect the beauty, diversity and tranquillity of the Norfolk countryside and coastline and care deeply about the future of rural landscapes in Norfolk and the quality of life for its inhabitants. For example, one of their current campaigns is tackling the issue of dark skies and aims to reduce the increasing levels of light pollution in the UK. CPRE Norfolk are raising awareness of the issue and campaigning for better lighting controls.

The promise, generously donated by CPRE Norfolk, is a year's membership for two to CPRE. The winning bid will receive a quarterly magazine from CPRE and the Norfolk Countryside Review - which is published three times a year. You will also receive a membership card which gives half price entry to over 200 beautiful and historic houses and gardens in England, including Holkham Hall, Mannington Hall and Wolterton Park in Norfolk. As a member of the Norfolk branch, you will be in touch with their local campaigning activities and be invited to local social events, talks, presentations and conferences. You will also have access to the knowledge and resources of the CPRE Norfolk county-wide team of volunteers who will be happy to help with any concerns you may have in your area.
