Its not often we are allowed out of the West Country and it is not often that we would wish to get away, but this month Anita Newcombe, Managing Editor, Dorset magazine travelled to London for a reception to promote the work and fundraising activity of the Jurassic Coast Trust. James Weld of Lulworth Castle is Chairman of the Trust and he invited me to a reception at HSBC Private Bank in St Jamess Street to promote their work and fundraising activity.
Adam Law of Petroleum Society of Great Britain, one of the Trusts major sponsors, was a key speaker.
The Jurassic Coast Trust is a very important charity to support. Since its inception in 2002 it has worked tirelessly to educate and promote awareness of Englands first natural World Heritage Site. The Trust works closely with the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Team, the Natural History Museum, National Trust, Natural England and the South West Regional Development Agency.
The Jurassic Coast, which extends through Dorset and East Devon was designated by UNESCO because it offers such a unique insight into the Earths history. Children and adults alike cannot fail to be inspired by the incredible geology spanning the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. And if that is not fascinating enough, the recent Jurassic Coast discovery of the fossilised skull of a huge sea monster, the pliosaur, which apparently is almost exactly the length of HSBCs splendid reception room (with the skull alone around 2.4 m long) has created a huge buzz in the county.
So please support the Jurassic Coast Trust if you can both private and corporate supporters will be warmly welcomed by the team and its a great way to celebrate Dorsets special character and history.
