Market Rasen Racecourse will be hosting the Lincolnshire Wolds Conference on Wednesday November 26, an all-day event for everyone who lives, works, looks after or has an interest in the Lincolnshire Wolds.

As the Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) celebrates 40 years of designation, this is a chance to review and discuss some of the current topics for the nationally protected landscape.

As well as speakers, there will be displays on the work undertaken by organisations with advice available on a range of topics.

The day starts at 9.30am with Councillor Lewis Strange, Join Advisory Committee (JAC) Chairman giving an opening address.

This will then be followed by talks on a number of different topics concerning the Wolds.

Howard Davis, of the National Association for ANOBs, will be giving a talk on the national perspective for AONBs.

The Lincolnshire Wolds ANOB Manager will be discussing the local management plan, recent successes and future challenges.

Farmer Charles Dobson will be discussing farming in the Wolds and its challenges and opportunities.

Cheryl Hilliam will be giving a community perspective and Liz Bates will discuss conserving and enhancing the AONB’s cultural and heritage resource.

After lunch there will be talks from James Marshall, Natural England, on conserving and enhancing the environment, Ursula Lidbetter on securing a sustainable and dynamic rural economy and James Milligan-Manby on the Marris Barn restoration.
