Due to the ongoing delays associated with the conveyance of land at Creve Coeur to the National Trust, and the uncertainty surrounding when this will happen, the National Trust has made the difficult decision of formally withdrawing as the beneficiaries of The Smile for Georgie Foundation, funds which would have been used to establish a nature reserve at Creve Coeur.
The National Trust recognises that this is a disappointing outcome for The Smile for Georgie Foundation and thanks them for the commitment they have shown to this project. The National Trust would like to wish them well in all of their future endeavours.
It is still the intention of the National Trust to establish a nature reserve at Creve Coeur, once the conveyance issues have been resolved.
