Chris loves the great outdoors - walking, cycling, fell-running, out with the binoculars bird-watching. He would rather be pitching a tent in the mountains than staying in a fancy 5 star hotel. He has a deep connection with the natural world and values the calmness it can bring in the midst of our busy 21st century lives.
Congratulations on reaching half a century Chris. Thank you for teaching me how to spot birds.

The founding of this grove is a way of dedicating an area of wilderness to Chris and his wider family and friends on the occasion of his 50th birthday. Reaching half a century is a great achievement, but long after the party is over, when all the balloons have burst and all the cake has been eaten, when the champagne bottles are empty, the seedlings planted in this grove will continue to grow and provide a habitat for a diverse range of wildlife, and a place of contemplation for human visitors.
