CPRE members and friends raised a glass to celebrate 90 years of CPRE at our 2016 AGM.  The meeting was held at Curry Rivel Old School Room on 13th October and was followed by a guided tour of Somerset Cider Brandy.

Oliver Hilliam, CPRE's Senior Communications & Information Officer who is the co author of our new book "22 Ideas That Saved The English Countryside" gave a potted history of the last 90 years of CPRE's campaigning work and the early years of the Somerset Branch.  Members celebrated with a fantastic 90th birthday cake and tea before  heading off for the tour of the distilery and cider farm nearby.
