ROUND TABLE VOTES IN FIRST UNIVERSITY CHAIRPERSON

 

The Lincoln Environment Roundtable will tonight (3rd October) welcome their new chairperson.

 

Kate Hiseman (35), Energy and Environment Manager at the University of Lincoln, was voted in as chairperson by the committee at last month’s meeting.

 

Kate, who becomes the first chairperson from the university, will chair her first assembly when the group meets tonight at the Birchwood Community and Leisure Centre in Lincoln.

 

The LER – which began 18 months ago - is a consortium which was set up by the University of Lincoln, the City of Lincoln Council, Groundwork Lincolnshire, the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, and the Lincoln Community Development Project.

 

The group co-ordinates environmental actions within the greater Lincoln area and promotes environmental improvements within the city.

 

“I am very delighted to be voted as chairperson but I know it will be quite a task,” said Kate. “However, it will be nice to see a project through from idea to maturity.

 

“The LER aims to find out what the local public want and to promote environmental improvements within the city.  Tonight’s meeting will discuss a project which will involve 30 families in selected wards of the city, giving advice on saving money and adopting a sustainable lifestyle.

 

“The meeting will start at 7pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend.”
