Grew up in the Hampshire end of the South Downs and spent most of the time outdoors! The start of Greenhavens coincided with my theme as the then Chair of Lewes District Council. That was to encourage and affirm wildlife conservation.

My love for the outdoors came from an early age, growing up in the gorgeous New Forest, a career inspiration for anyone; Resulting in the last 30 years supporting our natural environment, working with communities on the most amazing projects. I am continually inspired by the positive impact communities are making on their green spaces and I feel truly privileged to be making differences to biodiversity with so many dedicated and passionate people.

HI there, my name is Lizzie and I am a volunteer committee member of the Greenhavens Network. I love being out and walking in our lovely green spaces, parks, along the coast line and trails. I feel it’s a privilege to live here and I also feel I need to look after these wonderful spaces by keeping them litter free, accessible for everyone, and more importantly protected. I believe people working together can make the environments we live in a beautiful place to work, rest and play.
