Dr Sean Beer is to be presented with the Exmoor Society’s Founder’s Award for his support over many years and for undertaking the enormous task of updating the index for the Society’s journal, the Exmoor Review.
The Exmoor Review was first produced in 1959 and currently comprises 63 editions and over 2,660 articles on a broad range of subjects concerning the Exmoor National Park and surrounding area. Reflections are from a wide variety of informed and passionate local people, policymakers, academics, and others who wouldn’t want to be labelled. As such it constitutes a legacy that charts Exmoor’s ups and downs over more than 60 years and reflects on it history going back millennia.
The award, and a very handsome print of a painting by Cecil Aldin, was to be presented at this year’s Society AGM. Unfortunately because of the current situation with Covid the meeting was cancelled, but hopefully Sean will receive his presentation in 2022.
