Hello! My name is Laura and I am the newly-appointed Marketing and Communications Manager for Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT). I have just finished my first two weeks in the position, and the time has absolutely sped by!
I am delighted to be working for such a fantastic organisation that is achieving great things – not only within the city itself but also further afield.
My role involves ensuring PECT’s projects reach as wide an audience as possible. I am in a unique position that offers wonderful opportunities to spread the word in order to benefit individuals, communities, schools and businesses.
It’s been great to see that PECT really does practice what it promotes. The organisation has received accreditation from Investors in the Environment for its green credentials, plus there’s a strong emphasis on following good sustainable practices in order to reduce the organisation’s environmental impact. It’s been really refreshing to see how passionate PECT’s staff and volunteers are about sustainable living.
My background has always been within the horticultural, green living, and cultural sectors, so I’m delighted to bring my interests together to work within PECT. I enjoy trying to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, and this include growing my own produce, keeping chickens, buying local, recycling, and walking or cycling whenever I can.
However, there are always opportunities to improve my green credentials and I’m excited about the oppportunity to keep on learning!
