The Colne Valley Park making a difference

The Colne Valley Park enriches people’s lives with a big impact, it provides a special place to relax, to be active outdoors, it feeds creative outlets, educates and creates some wonderful times for many local people. It has long been protected as an important space for people’s recreation and wellbeing and that has never been more important to people than in recent times. Meet some of our Colne Valley locals who told us a bit more about what their local countryside has given them in recent times….


Lord John Randall of Uxbridge, supporting the Colne Valley Park

Lord Randall has loved the Colne Valley and its surrounding countryside his entire life. He first became involved more than a decade ago, while MP for Uxbridge, becoming a trustee of the Colne Valley Community Interest Company and helping raise the profile of this fragile landscape. John Randall’s Parliamentary career has also involved serving as a Deputy Chief Whip, and a spell working as environmental adviser to former Prime Minister Theresa May. His love for nature and a deep concern for the local area has driven much of his career and popularity.
