Sandra Farrington, Receptionist and Office Assistant

1. Further to CPRE Circular 02/18, when we asked all branch and regional chairs to nominate names of volunteers and staff to attend the Queen’s Garden Party, the draw took place on Friday 16 February at national office.

2. Shelagh Séjourné, Major gifts & Partnerships Officer, who joined the Development and Marketing Team last year October, did the draw.

3. The successful nominee drawn was Dee Haas, Chair of CPRE Hampshire branch. Dee joined the CPRE Hampshire board of Trustees in January 2014 as Chairman. She has a background in environmental campaigning and is a Chartered Landscape Architect.
With a team of active and knowledgeable volunteers, she has been responsible for building a positive campaigning ethos in her branch with the introduction of a ‘Strategic Vision for Hampshire’ and as part of that, a campaign to resurrect the idea of a Green Belt in South Hampshire.
Dee was thrilled to have been drawn; her husband will be accompanying her.

4. Attending the garden party from national office will be Sara Bertrand, Supporter Services Coordinator along with her sister. Sara has worked at national office for 12 years.

5. Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who participated in sending nominations through to us. I know the turn-around time was tight. I would also like to thank those of you who tried to get nominations but were unable to do so. In total, we received seven nominations from six branches.
