How lucky we are to have Dame Fiona Reynolds running The National Trust. She spoke last night at the Cardiff Business Club with great passion, and modestly explained how the charity has grown under her impressive and inspiring leadership.

Her love of the countryside, Wales, and the United Kingdom’s ‘special places’ was infectious, and I believe she made many friends in Cardiff last night. With a woman of such calibre heading up one of the world’s most successful charities, our countries beautiful natural assets are in safe hands.

Come back soon, Dame Fiona!

The National Trust protects over 350 historic houses, 28 castles and 254,000 hectares of land of outstanding natural beauty across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. This includes Wales’ own Powys Castle, the beautiful walled gardens at Llanerchaeron, and walking paths from Anglesey to Pembrokeshire.  It keeps these ‘special places’ open to the public ‘for ever, for everyone’.
