We were delighted to welcome the Welsh Association of Churchill Fellows to Glanusk at the end of April 2018 for their AGM and tour of the Estate.
The Churchill Fellows was established when Sir Winston Churchill died in 1965. Thousands of people, out of respect for the man and in gratitude for his inspired leadership, gave generously so that a living memorial to him could benefit future generations of British people.
As Sir Winston’s national memorial, the Churchill Fellows carry forward his legacy by funding UK citizens from all backgrounds to travel overseas in pursuit of new and better ways of tackling a wide range of the current challenges facing the UK. Successful applicants are known as Churchill Fellows for life. No qualifications are required, just a project and the desire and motivation to improve their community, profession or field.
Following their AGM and locally sourced and produced lunch they planted an octagon of Oaks next to the River Usk inside the Park Walls commemorating Winston Churchill.
They visited the new Churchill Oaks and the new Plaque.
We look forward to welcoming them back to the Estate again soon.
