I first became aware of the Forest’s work when a dear friend was buried there in 2011. I then got to know Bella and Berni though our mutual connections and interests and in my role as a minister of religion officiated at other funerals in the woods. I appreciated the ethos and purpose of the Trust and it fitted in with my own desire to encourage a greener and more sustainable way to bury the dead and with the wider ecological concern for promoting biodiversity and protecting native species.

A few years ago I was invited to become a trustee and it has been an honour and privilege to play a small part in the important work of the Eternal Forest, and particularly now looking towards developing a second site to continue to serve local people.
