Would you like an engaging speaker for your group?

23rd July 2021

Are you involved with an organisation which is looking for interesting and informative talks about Hertfordshire’s countryside?

We are delighted to be able to offer talks in person or online (via Zoom) to suit your group’s preferences. One of our speakers recently presented the talk ‘Exploring Rural Hertfordshire’ via Zoom to a local Women’s Institute group, which was followed by a lively discussion. This talk is based on a walk of the Hertfordshire Way completed by several of our volunteers.

We can offer a variety of other topics, including an illustrated account of walking the Lea Valley Walk, featuring history, buildings and wildlife as well as landscapes. Other topics include climate change and what each of us can do to help reduce the country’s carbon emissions, and how planning and the work of CPRE has helped to protect the Hertfordshire countryside which we all enjoy today.

One of our speakers has a special interest in the county’s wildlife and is happy to share photographs of the many species which visit her garden, and explain how it is managed with wildlife in mind. Our final offer is a tour of the county’s historic parish churches, which display a variety of architectural styles, incorporate numerous types of building materials in their structures and contain some of the oldest artefacts in Hertfordshire.

We can adjust the length of any talk to suit the requirements of your meeting. Normally the talks are illustrated with powerpoint slides and our speakers can bring a projector. A screen or white wall available in your meeting place is helpful but we can provide one if needed. The fee for our talks is normally £100 which helps to support CPRE’s work in the county. If you have a small membership we can reduce this amount on request.

We can also offer talks via Zoom.

We are now taking bookings for the rest of 2021 and for 2022. Dates are starting to fill up so please contact us as soon as possible by emailing office@cpreherts.org.uk
