Angela Charlton
Director Wales

At Ramblers since:  2008
Working hours:  Full time
Welsh speaker:  Learning

What I do:  My role involves steering Ramblers Cymru to deliver high quality projects and reach a wider audience. I want us to be relevant to everyone in Wales, wherever they are. I ensure we maintain a high profile and a strong voice with Welsh Government and partners in Wales. 

About me:  I have over 20 years experience in the voluntary sector, including community engagement in both the rural and urban environment context. My previous roles cover environmental education, fundraising, project development and management, countryside management and walk leading. I am from South Wales and have a real passion to see the people of Wales have every opportunity to flourish in a sustainable way whilst meeting the needs of the people and the environment. 

 

 

Rebecca Brough
Policy and Advocacy Manager


At Ramblers since:  March 2014
Working hours:  Full time
Welsh speaker:  Learning 


What I do:  I make sure that politicians and public bodies in Wales hear about Ramblers views and use our passion and knowledge of the outdoors to influence their decision-making. This involves meeting politicians, responding to consultations, writing briefings and monitoring policy developments.  I also help Ramblers members influence their local politicians by supporting them with information on current policy and research. At present, my priority is building relationships with Assembly members and the new Welsh Government cabinet following the 2016 Assembly elections, and promoting the improvements to access we called for in the Ramblers Cymru's manifesto.

About me:  I have a background in policy influencing work in the governmental, charity and statutory sectors.  With my degrees in Geography and Tourism and Environmental management, the Ramblers mission is one I feel passionate about. I live by the coast and regularly walk sections of Wales Coast Path with my family and my excitable border collie, Jess.

 

Kate Marshall

Kate Marshall
Engagement and Communications Officer

At Ramblers since:  January 2017
Working hours:  Full time
Welsh speaker:  Learning

What I do:  My role is to support staff and volunteers within Wales in all things engagement and communications.  This includes highlighting the great work Ramblers Cymru does across Wales, through social media, our websites, online news, press, radio and TV.   

About me: Since 2004 I’ve enjoyed working within the education, heritage and Third Sector, mainly in England helping develop new ideas through training, volunteer support and communications. Outside work, I’m a volunteer manager within The Scout Association, where I spend my free time training fellow volunteers and enabling youngsters to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors. So, if I’m not in work, I’m in a field with Scouts or off walking with my Collie, Mavis.

 

 

Amber Powell

Swyddog Pobl a Cherdded (Cymru) / People and Walking Officer (Wales)

 

At Ramblers Cymru since: June 2017

Working hours: full time

Welsh speaker: Basic conversation

 

What I do:  As the people and walking officer my role is to get out and about to meet members of our groups and areas in Wales.  My role also requires me to get involved in the communities to promote walking for all and to increase membership to the Ramblers. I am also promoting short walks for health and will be leading the organisation of the Big Welsh Walk.

 

About me:  I was brought up on a sustainable farm outside Carmarthen in west Wales.  My parents were great lovers of the outdoors and I spent my childhood exploring the countryside, swimming in rivers and the beautiful beaches of west Wales, climbing up hills and mountains.  Although I studied menswear fashion design at university, my work life has gone in a completely different direction.  I worked for security and intelligence at the Cabinet Office in Whitehall.  I started working in the charity sector when I returned to Wales in 2012, working for the Royal British Legion, Age Cymru and now the Ramblers.

  

Catherine Morgan

Working hours:  Full time

What I do:  I work with the Area volunteers, helping them get the support they might need to enable the groups to run effectively whether that’s offering 1st Aid training, social media workshops, a better understanding of Rights of Way and Access or a comprehensive induction for the Area Chair.  In addition I provide admin support to the Director of Ramblers Cymru and ensure the office operations are running smoothly.

About me:  I have a background in managing live events and community development projects in London and Cardiff and started out my career teaching English abroad for several years. I have always loved the outdoors and am passionate about the beauty of Wales with its castles, mountains, rolling hills and stunning coastline.  When I’m not out and about walking or on my bike, I’m usually found playing my trumpet with Cardiff community band – Wonderbrass.
