We thought you might like to see a list of those organisations who are either setting up stalls or simply attending en masse:
The Windsor branch of the Royal Warrant Holders’ Association: President this year is Annie Quigley who runs “Bibliophile” : great books!
ZSL: we hope that London and Whipsnade will show some of the amazing conservation work they do worldwide. Contrary to popular misconception, they are not government funded.
The Railway Heritage Trust (Chaired by Sir William) will show the fantastic conservation work (buildings and railway structures) they have helped to fund over the past 30 years.
The Fairground Heritage Trust (set up by Sir William+friends) will show what they have achieved against all odds at “Dingles” near Okehampton.
