We are delighted to announce that Bob Vaughan has joined our board of Trustees.
Bob worked in the Water and Environmental Sector across England and Wales for over 40 years. He started his career focussing on land drainage and water supply, then managed teams covering catchment management issues including Forestry, Agriculture and Geoscience issues across Wales. This broad catchment wide approach has brought into sharp focus the challenge of making the best sustainable use of the services that the environment delivers to all of us.
In balancing the often conflicting needs of society with those of the environment he led the NRW programme to deliver new innovative solutions to these challenges. He advised Government and NGO’s on Water, Forestry, Agriculture and Catchment issues.
He is now retired but is still engaged in advice and support to Welsh Water’s Brecon Beacons Mega Catchment initiative, local history projects, and is a director of the Elan Valley Trust.
Our team of five trustees brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Stump Up For Trees. They meet regularly and can often be found supporting at our events, out with volunteers on a tree plant or at the nursery. You can find out more of them in our 'about us' section.
