Caplor is a small hill in on the border lands between England and Wales. A modest place. Yet it is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is just one of a myriad of places in the world that encourage us to look after our planet for future generations.
Caplor Hill has signs of an Iron Age Fort. Long ago, fighting over shifting boundaries, blood was shed between peoples in the area. The stories still exist, but the wounds have now healed. The fort reminds us that we should avoid harmful divisions. Today's imperative should be to move on from the arguments about the need for a sustainable path and to inspire more action.
Caplor Hill is also home to a few small and medium sized organisations, including Caplor Farm and the “Caplor” group of companies, a 3rd generation family enterprise. Such organisations exist throughout the world, often in hard-to-reach places, and serve to prove that 'not-for-profits' and businesses are both fundementally important. SMEs provide a vital role in society, even though they often attract less attention than their larger counter-parts. Furthermore all organisations – whatever their scale – need to have a meaningful purpose beyond survival and making a necessary surplus or profit.
