Environment minister Richard Benyon met Julian Roughton, SWT’s Chief Executive, during a tour of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB on 9th June.

Julian outlined Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s activity within the AONB and, in the light of the Natural Environment White Paper, the potential for developing ecological networks across the Coast and Heaths. Nick Collinson, Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB Manager reported that the Minister said he was truly inspired by the level of enthusiasm, innovation and activity that he saw and said he was taking away many ideas to feed into all sorts of agendas, both in his constituency, in his local AONB and into national Government.
