Foundation, a charitable rivers trust that delivers a broad range of
projects to benefit our rivers. The work of Kate’s team seeks to
reduce diffuse pollution arising from agriculture throughout the

address specific pressures that include access to spawning
grounds for migratory fish, habitat conditions and the water quality
and quantity of the Wye.
Kate grew up on a dairy farm in North Herefordshire, this,
combined with experience gained from working for the
Environment Agency, gives her a well balanced view on the risks
and opportunities that agriculture can offer the water environment.
