Do you care passionately about the preservation of Devon and Cornwall's historic houses, gardens, coast and countryside? Are you interested in applying your specialist knowledge to help protect the places you love? If the answer is yes - then the National Trust needs you! The National Trust in Devon and Cornwall is seeking committee members, to serve on its regional committee. Committee members provide advice and guidance on the work of the Trust in Devon and Cornwall. Candidates must be members of the National Trust and should have an awareness of the need for local emphasis in applying national policies and a feeling for regional diversity. The National Trust is especially keen to hear from people with an interest in working with volunteers and young people, arts and architecture and our commercial activities as funds raised through these are vital in supporting our conservation work. For more information prospective Committee members should contact Anne Jones, Administration Manager on 01208 265204. The National Trust protects nearly 29,000ha (more than 70,000 acres) of land in Devon and Cornwall. This region is well known for its stunning coastal walks, as it has some of the most dramatic sea views in the country. In Devon and Cornwall the Trust protects almost 300 miles of spectacular coastline, which equates to almost 50 per cent of the coastline that comes under the Trust's protection nationally. From the rugged, windswept landscape of West Penwith, and the stark remains of the mining industry in both counties, to the beautifully ordered gardens at Knightshayes Court, the contrasting splendours of Devon and Cornwall have something to offer everyone.
