The objectives set for the college include:
- undertaking and publishing research into hill farming and land management
- demonstration for research and training
- running training programmes
- organising events to stimulate discussion
These objectives will sound very familiar to supporters of The Heather Trust - they are very similar to ours, and as a result I have offered support for the programme of work at the new Centre. It may be helpful to use the HT networks to spread the word about the Centre's activities throughout the UK.
