Rebecca has been the Programme Manager of the Living Wandle Landscape Partnership since January 2014. Since graduating with a degree in Earth and Environmental Science in 2008 she has known her motivations lie in working with communities and improving the environment. She enjoyed delivering a broad range of community, heritage and environmental projects for Milton Keynes Council and Groundwork Hertfordshire before 2012, and has since worked for the Environment Agency improving the Lee, Roding, Beam and Ingrebourne rivers for biodiversity in North East London. In her spare time Rebecca enjoys her violin and playing rugby and Gaelic football. She rarely spends her time away from rivers as she lives next to the Thames in Reading, and the Living Wandle team’s office is adjacent to the Wandle in Morden Hall Park. The Living Wandle programme brings all of Rebecca’s passions together.
