Dr Lucy Wilson

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 botanising around the county and carrying out practical habitat management. 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 and several choir tours throughout Europe. She makes occasional appearances with a number of other chamber choirs around Cambridge.

As a governor at her children’s primary school for four years, Lucy gained much experience in the governance of educational settings. Over the years she has also been on a variety of other committees within her village and in Cambridge and is currently on the editorial board for Nature in Cambridgeshire and the management team for the Local Nature Recovery Plan in Girton. Further afield she is a regular volunteer on the Rheilffordd Ffestiniog (Ffestiniog Railway) in North Wales, working in the Infrastructure Department on the Permanent Way (laying track). Lucy is responsible for designing and maintaining the KJV website and is KJV’s safeguarding Trustee and official photographer.
