Our ambitious and changemaker Trustees are all volunteers. They each bring a variety of skills, experience and expertise to guide us into the future.

We are looking for more friendly local people who are interested in supporting the work of Greener and Cleaner, working in The Hub and fighting the climate crisis together. 

If you are keen to get involved with our team, please consider volunteering. There are many benefits and there are lots of different opportunities for all different skill sets.

Meet the Trustees:

A social scientist by training, Carrie is excited to work with Greener and Cleaner to think about how we can use research to capture new models for promoting community engagement with nature and the environment, and to improve awareness around the need for a more sustainable and equitable future.

I currently work in corporate governance and have a background in policy and project management. I became passionate about sustainability whilst at university, and was excited to discover a large community of like-minded people in my local area through Greener and Cleaner.

I believe that how we choose to live has local and global impacts, and that collectively we have the power to realise positive change for everyone’s benefit. In my spare time I can be found enjoying a walk in the many green spaces that we have on our doorstep in Bromley.

I have taken up my role within Greener and Cleaner as I feel passionately about our need to make changes within our communities to improve our environment.

I am a mother of two children and work part time as a pharmacist within the NHS. My awareness of planetary health, and how it impacts on our own health and that of our children, pushes me to do what I can within my professional and home life to make change a reality. I love gardening, music, crafting, wildlife and connecting with others to build strong communities. The growth of Greener and Cleaner over the years I have been involved gives me hope in the future and strength to strive for better together.

I am a Chartered Accountant. Having worked for a number of financial firms in the City for over 30 years, I recently decided to take early retirement.

I’ve lived in Bromley for over 20 years and I’m keen to devote more time to helping my community. I’m a keen walker and have an allotment in the borough where I enjoy growing, composting and preserving.

After a career in magazine design and art direction, I launched Contingent Works in Bromley. A boutique cowork studio in the centre of town with a stakeholder structure to support staff, members, and the local community. Our three pillars are work, community and wellness and after launching in a pandemic lockdown we have become a space for a local community of entrepreneurs and creatives.

Both roles allow me to actively contribute to a greener future, promoting environmentally responsible practices and fostering a sustainable community. As a trustee of Greener and Cleaner, the significance of championing Net Zero and sustainability cannot be overstated. It is a true honour to play a part in shaping a greener and more sustainable future.

I retired some years ago from a 30+ year ‘City’ career in International Finance; the latter years being spent developing and financing ‘green’ projects such as Solar and Wind power generation. Since retirement I have become involved as a Trustee of a Bromley secondary school, a small charity helping less fortunate students and most recently Greener and Cleaner.

I have lived in Bromley for nearly 40 years and have four children, who have all grown up and moved on – but not too far!

I am a firm believer that ‘public education’, particularly in schools, is the way forward to achieving future sustainability. The opening of the Hub is an important first step towards this.

What does the future hold?

We envision a world with less carbon emissions and we want you to help us get there.
