A Lordly Visit

Thursday, August 23rd 2018

When expecting a visit from a Lord there are certain standards to uphold!

As such we've been working hard over the last couple of days, tidying and cutting back the fast encroaching vegetation from the main access route.

With preparations in place we welcomed Lord Zetland back to the Reserve along with members of the Management Group, both old and new.

From right to left starting at the back; Major Mick Lynch (Commandant at Warcop and a new addition to the Foxglove Management Group), David Boake (who set up all of the cameras on the Reserve!), Janet Boakes (a new addition to the Foxglove Management Group), Ian Wilson (yours truly), Lawrence Mark Dundas, 4th Marquess of Zetland (Patron of Foxglove Covert LNR), Elizabeth Dickinson (Secretary, Foxglove Management Group), Sophie Rainer (Chair, Foxglove Management Group), and Major Tony Crease (Treasurer, Foxglove Management Group).
