I’m very excited to join the Chase and Chalke team to help steer and support the Landscape Partnership Scheme through to the end of 2024. Whilst the scheme officially finishes in 2024, it is of course really only the beginning as the legacy will long outlive this date! I join a committed team and look forward to supporting them and building on their great work for the next twelve months.
A bit about me, I have been very fortunate to live and work in this part of the world for much of my life. Working for Natural England (and formerly English Nature) I have got to know many of the landowners and partners in south Wiltshire and north Dorset, for 10 years being the manager of Martin Down National Nature Reserve I had daily first hand experience of the awe and beauty of Cranborne Chase. I hope to build upon these partnerships and experiences to secure a strong legacy for Chase and Chalke.
Outside of work, I like to attempt a Parkrun most weekends and enjoy walking and cycling the various routes around Grovely Woods and the surrounding countryside.
