Katy Menday,

Leisure & Rec Manager

After a few years teaching field studies post-graduation, I started work at Ham Hill as an assistant ranger, working with all sorts of groups and developing events. I understand how important natural greenspaces are for human health but that more must be done to conserve species and habitats for the future. Bringing an ecological background I co- lead delivery of the Environment Strategy with Vicki and the wider team.

Cara Naden,

Environment Specialist

I’ve been working in the environment sector for about 20 years since graduating from Goldsmiths with a degree in Eco Design. Most of this time I’ve worked with many communities and organisations in South Somerset, and across the county, helping to support all on our journeys to carbon neutrality.  I am particularly experienced in, and passionate about, eco living, eco building and renovation, electric transport, waste reduction/reuse and renewable energy. I also love tree and hedge planting (and laying) and engaging with nature. As SSDC’s Environment Specialist I’m here to help deliver the environment strategy and support the council and community get to carbon neutrality by 2030.
