Congratulations to our Business Manager Gerry Sherwin, who has been made a Fellow of the Landscape Institute; the chartered body for the landscape profession.
Gerry received the honour during special graduation ceremony at the Royal College of Physicians on 4 March, which also welcomed 146 newly chartered members to the landscape profession. She joins High Weald AONB Partnership co-Director Sally Marsh, who received a Fellowship in 2019.
Fellow of the Landscape Institute (FLI) is the highest form of Chartered membership awarded to its innovators, leaders and ambassadors. The award of Fellowship of the Landscape Institute recognises those who have made a special contribution to the development and promotion of the landscape profession.
The Landscape Institute is an education charity that aims – through the work of its members – to protect, conserve and enhance the natural and built environment for the public benefit.
Both Sally and Gerry will be working with the Landscape Institute to raise the profile of the land management profession and enable other protected landscape professionals to achieve Chartered membership status.
