britain certainly has talent

A YEAR ago we ran a full-page advert in the magazine titled ‘LRM’s Got Talent’. It was an appeal to readers, to tell us why their Land Rover should be on the cover of LRM.

tackling illegal driving on salisbury plain

IF WE all follow good practice while out greenlaning it will help to ensure that we can keep enjoying off-roading in some of England’s most beautiful spots for the foreseeable future. More information about SPTA by-laws and public rights of way can be found on the government website (gov.uk/ministryof-defence-byelaws) and most individual council websites, too, and as we’ve said before, the Green Lane Association (glassuk.org ) offers its members access to invaluable information and advice.

Throughout Operation Aston, Wiltshire Police’s Rural Crime Team, the Special Constabulary, Community Policing Team officers and representatives from the MoD based at SPTA covered…
