    Hi Ruth, Can you please tell me more about the Land Conference at Wiston House. Kind regards, Cally

    Hello Ruth – we met in Bishops Cleeve Cheltenham and I was very inspired by your talk. I am working with a few other church members, in a city church in a culturally diverse area of Gloucester, to try to get an eco church award. We are hoping to have a ‘Green day’ in the Autumn where we hopefully can engage our community with environmental issues , we are in initial stages of planning and hoping to have a speaker. ( We have no money but could pay travel) is this something you might be able to do or of not recommend someone who could.
