Sir William Worsley Interview

ICF Zoom Interview

Today Sharon hosted the second in the Institute of Chartered Foresters occasional series on ‘My Life in Three Trees’. We are delighted that Sir William Worsley has agreed to be interviewed via the  Zoom platform.

Sir William is a forester, land owner and Chartered Surveyor. He has had a life-long love of trees and has served as the President of the CLA, and was a member of the Forestry Commissions Advisory Panel.

He came in particular to the public eye for being the first National Tree Champion until February this year. He also serves as Chairman from the National Forest Company, and is now the Chair of the Forestry Commission following Sir Harry Studholme’s 7 years in post.

National Arbor Day

Radio Lancashire

Sharon was asked to travel and speak to the students at Myerscough College in Preston and organised by Duncan Slater, presenting the first National Arbor Day in her role as Vice President of the Institute of Chartered Foresters.  At lunch an interview with (click this link for the interview) BBC Radio Lancashire went out with Stephen Lowe.

To quote Duncan, the day is/was …….’a massive opportunity to promote the many benefits that trees can bring to communities – and also highlight the arboricultural industry as essential for providing, maintaining and managing those trees’.

Wedding Bells mean a name change at SHA!

Mrs Sharon Durdant-Hollamby - Come on Down!

It is with great pleasure that we can announce the marriage of  Sharon, Director of SHA, to Noel Durdant-Hollamby, in a ceremony at Gretna Green on the 15th August 2019.

The happy couple ventured north to their friends fishing hotel in Scourie, Sutherland, before returning via Loch Lomond and Ullswater.

This means of course that there is a name change  - Mrs Sharon Durdant-Hollamby - however Sharon will remain to all who know her as
'The Tree Lady', and 'Sharon', so those who don't want to risk pronouncing her new  surname, have no fear, she won't hold it against you if you don't!
