TV celeb named as new Camping & Caravanning Club President
The 43-year old celeb is a natural choice, given her passion for the great outdoors and her long relationship with the C&CC. She replaces octogenarian botanist David Bellamy who held the esteemed position for 11 years. He will become Vice President.
Bradbury is best known as one of BBC One’s Countryfile presenters, and recently hosted the ITV teatime game show, Take on the Twisters. In addition, she has presented Wainwright’s Walks, The Rough Guide to…, Secret Britain, The Great British Countryside, That’s Britain, Watchdog and Planet Earth Live to name but a few!
Bradbury is delighted to have been elected as the Club’s 11th President and said: “I have always been a keen advocate of the outdoor lifestyle ever since my dad took me out walking into the Peak District after school and at weekends. Camping and caravanning is a priceless chance to get closer to nature and back in touch with who you really are.”
Bradbury has some big shoes to fill, following in the snowy footprints of Scott of the Antarctic and Sir Robert Baden-Powell.
