Heritage Trust hosts black tie dinner

Conservation and heritage charity The Sussex Heritage Trust hosts a biennial black tie dinner at the Ashdown Park Hotel, Forest Row on October 18 where Sir Neil Cossons OBE from the National Trust will talk about people and places, reflecting how our view of heritage changes over time.

The Trust is recognised for its annual awards scheme to reward quality conservation, restoration and good design of new buildings and encourages use of traditional skills and crafts. Together with the Historic Houses Association, the Trust has started a bursary scheme for young apprentices wanting to learn more about traditional skills.
