Hi fellow road verge campaigners,

My name is Kate Petty and, thanks to your support and passion and a generous award from The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation, I have just joined Plantlife in a brand new role as the Road Verge Campaign Manager.

Over the next 18-24 months I will be persuading as many councils as possible to adopt Plantlife’s new official guidelines which will be ready in early spring. This work is supported by all the local stories you send us - whether it’s a shocking example of orchids being mown down or just the sheer number of supporters who’ve signed our petition - to help us make the case for transforming the way we manage our verges.

I am thrilled to join the Plantlife team and I’m really looking forward to managing such an exciting campaign in order to make a difference to our wild flowers and wildlife. I can’t wait to get stuck in and look forward to keeping you all updated as the campaign progresses.

All the best,

Kate Petty
