Moorland Forum - 10th Anniversary Meeting
The Moorland Forum's meeting that took place yesterday, was 10 years to the day after the launch of the Forum at Hopetoun House in 2002. An excellent gathering of guests and Chairman, Chief Executives and representatives of the Forum's member organisations heard an address by the Minister for Environment & Climate Change, Stewart Stevenson, MSP. This was followed by views of the development of the Forum and the opportunities that are available in the future, from Colin Galbraith, who was instrumental in setting up the Forum, Stuart Housden (Director, RSPB Scotland) and Luke Borwick (Chairman, Scottish Land & Estates).
A press release from the meeting is available from the website and photographs can be viewed separately.
