Press release issued on behalf of the Bathscape Board
Bathscape is engaging new people to help develop and deliver the Heritage Lottery Fund Landscape Partnership Scheme that aims to benefit the landscape for people, place and communities.
A wide range of people from local communities have attended Bathscape events and activities to test and contribute ideas. Feedback from participants on Family Activity Days, Bathscape Walking Festival and wildlife surveys are shaping future Bathscape projects.
There is also a new face at the Bathscape Landscape Partnership. This month, Andrew Grant takes on the Chair from Dr Marion Harney Director of Studies, Conservation of Historic Gardens and Cultural Landscapes at University of Bath, who has successfully chaired the Partnership over 3 years, obtaining the HLF grant and appointing 2 dedicated officers to develop and deliver the Scheme.
Andrew Grant, a resident of Bath established the highly respected landscape architecture practice -Grant Associates 20 years ago with a mission to reconnect people with the natural world and to develop innovative, sustainable landscapes with purpose and identity. Andrew is also the co- founder of the community led initiative Forest of Imagination.
On being appointed as Bathscape Chair, Andrew Grant said: “I believe Bathscape is a fantastic initiative and has the potential to be the catalyst that can transform the way we think and act with respect to the social and environmental fabric of this great city and its setting. I am delighted to be offered the chance to join the Partnership on this important, landmark initiative.”‘
Bathscape Landscape Partnership is grateful to local supporters and all National Lottery players who help fund HLF projects. For further information on the Partnership and Bathscape scheme updates visit www.bathscape.co.uk.
