Heart of England Forest
Invitation to become a Trustee of the Heart of England Forest The Heart of England Forest is an exciting and ambitious charity, created by the late entrepreneur and poet, Felix Dennis. Felix passionately believed in reversing centuries of woodland decline by planting one of the largest forests in England. Our goal is to create a huge, unbroken or contiguous woodland of 30,000 acres – a refuge from the modern world where people can rediscover nature and wildlife can flourish. Achieving our vision will take decades, but the process will enrich the lives and wellbeing of millions of people for centuries to come. The forest stretches up the Warwickshire / Worcestershire border, from the present-day borders of Shakespeare’s Forest of Arden to the edge of the Vale of Evesham – the north Cotswolds to south Birmingham. We’re creating a place to walk under shady canopies and through airy glades, away from the bustle of city life. As a modern Board we are keen to increase our diversity to reflect the people which the Heart of England Forest serves – from the cosmopolitan cities of Birmingham and Coventry to the rural communities of Warwickshire and Worcestershire. As a member of our Board of Trustees you will help to ensure that the Heart of England Forest fulfils its duty to its beneficiaries through delivering our charitable objects, vision, mission and values. In return, we’ll look for commitment to our vision and aims, a willingness to devote the necessary time and effort to fulfilling the role, and the ability to work effectively as a member of a small team.
