Lucy is a Conservation Officer at the local Wildlife Trust with a specialism in surveying the wider countryside and providing local landowners with conservation advice, but she also enjoys carrying out practical habitat management and botanising around the county. When not out in a field or woodland, Lucy is a keen amateur choral singer. Her singing career started as an undergraduate singing in St Edmund Hall Chapel Choir (Oxford) and after moving Cambridge in 2002 to undertake her PhD in Earth Sciences she quickly joined Wolfson College Choir and Wolfson Chamber Singers. Under Lynette Alcántara’s musical directorship, Lucy’s singing has thrived and includes highlights such as singing in the Royal Albert Hall at the Prom in celebration of the University of Cambridge’s 800th anniversary in 2009 and several choir tours throughout Europe. It was only natural, therefore, for her two children to join KJV and they both wholeheartedly enjoyed the experience.
As a governor at her children’s primary school for four years, Lucy has gained much experience in the governance of educational settings. She has also been on a variety of other committees within her village and is currently part of the management team for a small nature reserve on Adams Road and also a volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway, working on the track. Lucy is responsible for designing and maintaining the KJV website and is KJV’s safeguarding Trustee.
