Delegates from the Scottish Crofting Federation were in the north of England on the 23rd of February to attend a major meeting discussing the formation of a UK and Ireland wide Foundation For Common Land.

At the meeting held at Melmerby in Cumbria were graziers from throughout the UK and Ireland who work common land, and members of representative groups that support them. A series of short presentations at the outset of the meeting showed that in some areas, such as the Highlands and Islands, there is a strong local representative system already in place, while in other parts of the country representative groups are less developed or do not exist at all.
