The Tame Valley Wetlands’ team are employed by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and the RSPB.

The team are funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and are employed to deliver the Tame Valley Wetlands Scheme, working closely with the wider Partnership.

We are based at Hams Hall Environmental Studies Centre.

  • Nicola Lynes, Youth engagement Officer: Nicola is working with young people (aged 16-25), engaging them with the landscape and its heritage (‘Programme B – Community Engagement’).
  • Chris Harris, Interpretation Officer: Chris delivers on our interpretation projects – promoting the scheme and its activities, and helping to improve signage and information across the valley, both online and on the ground (‘Programme C – Access & Learning’).
  • Dafydd Jones, Access Officer: Dafydd works with local people, landowners and volunteers to improve physical access routes across the landscape (‘Programme C – Access & Learning’).
