The Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust has announced the appointment of Dr Tim Graham as its new Chief Executive Officer. Tim is moving from his current post as Chief Executive of the Manx Wildlife Trust. Prior to that he managed a complex partnership programme at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and was Biodiversity Manager at Lancashire Wildlife Trust. His background is in environmental biology and his specific conservation interests include landscape-scale conservation and restoration. Tim will start in post at the end of November. Welcome to VC55 from the NatureSpot team Tim.
We would also like to register our thanks to Simon Bentley, who has been Trust Director since 2001 and is taking up a new role as Project Director for Leicester Cathedral Revealed - so we'll still see him around.
