Meet the volunteers who run Kennett Community Land Trust
Robin Swanson MBE, Chairman & Founder Member
Robin has lived in Kennett in 2004 and since retiring from the Army has been a Director and Consultant in his own Company.
A word from the Chair:
Robin says "having fought against large developments such as Watermark since moving to the area, I passionately believe that Kennett Garden Village is the best option for the Village in the current environment."
Tim Foddy Trustee & Founder Member
Tim has lived in the village for almost 30 years, coming from a family which earned its living from the land. He worked for 35 years in the Agricultural Seeds and Plant Breeding industry. Tim is determined that the Kennett Garden Village development connects as closely as possible with the Ecology of the local area, as he says "we all must not forget that we share where we live with other living things!".
