I graduated from Salford University in 2006 with a degree in Wildlife and Practical Conservation .I became involved in the Cheshire Wildlife Trust and l served as a Trustee for 3 years. I have been involved with conservation in Trafford for many years and believe conservation is particularly precious in urban areas so that people can engage with green areas in their own neighbourhood.
Task Co-ordinator, Treasurer & Task Leader
I have been actively working on nature conservation in Trafford for 25 years. I am a volunteer and member of several local organisations, including the National Trust, Cheshire Wildlife Trust North Group and Altrincham Naturalists, as well as Trafford Wildlife. I co-ordinate the conservation work across the reserves looked after by Trafford Wildlife.
Secretary & Task Leader
I've been volunteering with nature conservation organisations for much of my life and I'm a strong believer that our limited nature areas in Trafford need protecting and nurturing. Volunteering on Nature reserves is enjoyable and beneficial to mental health.
Since my career in education came to an end in 2011 I have been able to expand my interest in the natural world and have enjoyed working with The Conservation Volunteers and latterly with Trafford Wildlife. I am a member of Butterfly Conservation, the RSPB and National Trust, all of which seek to promote and protect our wildlife and heritage. I am also a keen photographer and belong to the Nature group of the Royal Photographic Society. I look forward to helping to introduce other people to the joys of nature and conservation.
