Aspects of Land - Autumn 2015

Perfect day – why it's always the right time to examine your business

Rural life can often be portrayed as the idyll, but for those who are at the mercy of summer droughts, or a savage drop in milk prices, that can be far from the truth. In fact, in many ways we share similar frustrations to our urban cousins: poor broadband speeds, a lack of housing, how to raise capital for new investment.

This issue has a look at some of these concerns, and also at the work of the charity Countryside Learning that helps to spread an understanding of life in the countryside, for which we have been actively fundraising for. If you have any questions raised by this publication, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
