WF2016 Charity: CPRE
Campaign to Protect Rural England – Hertfordshire
The CPRE campaigns nationally for a better future for England’s countryside. CPRE Hertfordshire, based in Welwyn village, was founded in 1928 and is a separate registered charity, funded through subscriptions, donations, legacies and fundraising.
CPRE Hertfordshire strives to protect the countryside from harm, working through the planning system and raising the alarm when it is threatened – supporting communities and campaigns to protect valued areas, influencing planning policies to ensure they include protection for the countryside and encouraging people of all ages to take an interest in and enjoy their local area.
