I am Elizabeth, based from our home in East Yorkshire. Together with my husband, Bill, we set up in February 1998. Since then we have gained @Amanda McDermott as a very valuable member of our senior team.
We are keen on lots of issues but SuDS, in its various iterations, is close to all our hearts. Bill and I set up West Wolds Slow the Flow in response to being the subject of a flood event in November 2019. We have created four living roofs on our property and have been enjoying watching the changes and how they have coped with the extremes of weather. They are part of our sustainable drainage strategy for the property.
I love researching the history of a site and think it is very important to understand the history before making any changes. A favourite project was the regeneration of Burnby Hall Gardens - Rock Garden created in 1910 by the Backhouse Nursery of York, which is a joy to revisit on a regular basis.
Apart from that we have two grown up daughters, two cats and a new puppy.
