hello, and welcome.
Four years ago the Landscape Institute South East Branch did not exist. Its formation based on the SE Region was easy to define but difficult to manage with its most connected central point being in another LI region, London. Fast-forward through those years and thanks to a great deal of work from founding committee members the LISE is thriving.
The system of 3 hubs within the LISE, North (Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire), West (Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex), East (East Sussex and Kent) is allowing a local point of contact and focus for events.
I would like to thank the hub coordinators and committee members who have helped established the LISE. It been a difficult time to get people involved in a new regional group and thanks to their hard work it’s been a success. The current committee was elected at the AGM at Hilliers Garden in October following a well-received Olympic Talk by Arthur Gelling and Dafyd Coe.
If you have suggestions for events or would like to get involved in other aspects of the LISE please feel free to email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Who are we, and what do we want?
In July 2009, the South East Branch wrote to all its members, asking (in the main) what kind of activities it should prioritise, and to gauge opinion on the direction and policies the new branch should set out to implement. Out of 813 LI members in the region, 129 surveys were completed.
