Kit Braunholtz is a man who likes a good challenge it seems. He is also proof that age is simply a number. They say you are as old as you feel. If you feel like attaching yourself to the wing of a plane, to celebrate your birthday, then you would look as young as Kit does now! Kit has been passionate about conservation since the 1970s and has been a lifelong member of CPRE. At 90 Kit’s thinking is inspiring. He is looking to the future by dedicating his Wing Walk to a cause that is focused on caring for our countryside for our children, our grandchildren and future generations.  Climate change, and the disappearance of our nature and wildlife, is hitting the headlines on a daily basis. Kit is making his own headlines by doing something positive to help highlight these issues by strapping himself to the wings of a biplane at Rendcomb airfield on August 7th.

CPRE Gloucestershire’s Rural Excellence Award 2019 Scheme is now open for nominations. The Awards panel are hoping to encourage nominations from teams of professionals who are tackling significant rural issues like affordable rented housing. ‘The example set by the 100% affordable housing development at Whittington Close, St Briavels, last year, is an inspirational illustration of the local District Council working with partners to provide nine rental properties, meeting an identified housing need,’ comments Richard Lloyd, Vice Chair of CPRE Gloucestershire.
