The news that the National Trust has completely blanked the petition by local people, including a good number of National Trust members, and is seeking to let a large area of its High Peak moorland to shooting interests has not gone down well. This version of the NT advert appeared on the Moorland Vision blog with a pithy commentary…
I see that the number of signatures on the petition (on paper and online) has now passed 6000; it is still open, please sign here.
There are more updates to follow over the next few days.
So far, no-one from the NT has been in touch saying that they would like to take up the offer of a guest blog to explain their position here.

Do you really wonder why?
I left RSPB because they do not oppose killing wild birds for fun, so now I will cancel my NT sub. Unfortunately this years sub has just been DD’d. And extra will go to LACS, Badger Trust and John Muir Trust.

The DG of the NT, Dame Helen Ghosh, has announced her departure to Oxford Uni. The NT Head of Conservation is retiring in autumn 2017. Now is the time to influence the NT and bring its land management into the 21st century, as its leaders change. Keep up the pressure. Stop recreational hunting on Charity and Public lands.
I am sure the NT’s legal Dept would be very interested in this article.
