Local Nature Partnerships event hosted at Coin Street Conference Centre

Defra Local Nature Partnerships at Coin Street Conference Centre

Coin Street is delighted to have been chosen to host Defra’s annual Local Nature Partnerships event. The event held on 24 March, facilitated networking and discussion between a broad range of local organisations, businesses and people who aim to bring about improvements in their local natural environment.

Paul Hill Gibbins of Defra’s Deliver Team said “the decision to hold the event at Coin Street’s neighbourhood centre was a simple one”, he highlighted the layout, location, equipment and pricing as key selling points, adding “the excellent acoustics and large floor space permitted extremely productive dialogue”.

Nina Green, Coin Street’s Sales and Events Manager was hugely pleased to have the opportunity to welcome Defra back to the conference centre. “Coin Street offered Defra not only suitable facilities and rates, but also a space that is highly sustainable and perfectly aligned with Defra’s Local Nature Partnership goals”. The Local Nature Partnerships programme is in turn aligned with Coin Street’s mission, in terms of its focus on empowering local people to make decisions that affect their areas.

The emphasis this year was on networking and discussion with topics including Natural Capital, national pollinator strategy and health and wellbeing. Local Nature Partnership representatives heard from a number of speakers throughout the day including Dan Rogerson MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for water, forestry, rural affairs and resource management.
