The Summer 2011 edition of the Kent Wildlife Trust magazine carried a very welcome bit of news:
June saw the award of MBE to Fred Booth. Fred has been actively involved in telling people about the importance of Kent’s Wildlife for years. Leading YOC and RSPB local groups in Canterbury; the Trust’s first Chief Executive; active in the Kent Field Club; leader of walks and talks and an early advocate of the need to know more about our marine environment, active in the Maidstone Local Group – Fred has done it all. No royal accolade has been more deserved than Fred’s.
Congratulations to Fred from all the Friends of the Downs. Now we’ll have to have a whip-round to get some red carpet for his next visit!
