Putting the mental’ in Environmental, I have signed up to a scheme that enables people to buy shares in an Environmental project. The scheme is called Longlands Common and a good friend, Allan, is involved with it - I believe he sits on the board.

It came about that people can now purchase shares in Longlands common for as little as £50 or up to £37,500. I played the part I could afford.

If you are interested in finding out more about the project then head to the Longlands Common website and you can find out as much or as little as you want - it is not up to me to ram it down your throat.

But, I will add that it is a great initiative to preseve a green space. We stopped a road, now let’s start a forest.
