The aim of our 'Love Rural Life' Awareness Campaign is to connect our passion for the countryside with the need to protect it.

By celebrating the beauty of our landscapes and the vibrancy of rural life, through personal stories and photographs, we hope to promote more conversations about ways to protect and enhance the countryside, along with its towns and villages. We want you to help us give the countryside a voice by joining our campaigns to promote: 

a) More affordable housing for the young

b) Better public transport for our rural communities

c) More awareness in schools about the threats to the countryside and the opportunities to help protect it

d) A focus on developing the right homes in the right places

e) Reductions in litter and waste and increases in recyling opportunities

f) Better night skies and the reduction of light pollution

g) Rural employment
