  • Sarah

    You might like to know that there’s a new item for discussion in the topic of farming opportunity. Farmers can now make a living from their land by diversifying into vacations and providing services. This helps to alleviate problems in other sectors. It’s all about the new camping trend – glamping – and here is a Glamping Business step-by-step Guideabout exactly how to do it. I would be happy to give an overview for any of your members or networks if you feel it might be useful to them. Sarah

    Hi my name is Sam Price and I am studying at Sheffield Hallam University doing an MSc in Environmental Management. I am currently undertaking a survey on Reintroducing the lynx to the British landscape. I am wanting to investigate public opinion towards the possibility of a reintroduction.
