Two new Trustees have been introduced: Elizabeth Seward (right) and Charlotte Rathbone.

Elizabeth has worked to provide governance and executive support to a network of small charities, devising and developing the current governance training delivered to all new trustees across the Citizens Advice Service.

She has long been involved with Corams' Fields – a unique children's space in central London on the site of the original Foundling Hospital – with particular interest in heritage and estate matters.

She also volunteers at Geffrye Museum in East London where she leads tours of the original alms houses on the site.

Earlier in her career, she was a director of an educational theatre group who worked nationwide in schools, including on site-specific productions that addressed heritage and belonging.

Charlotte is a chartered landscape architect who brings 30 years' experience in landscape design and environmental art to the Sharpham board of Trustees.

She has worked as a practising landscape architect in Bristol, Bath, Hong Kong and Devon. She and her husband have had their own practice in South Devon since 1996.

Charlotte's work has included designing new public and private spaces in historic rural and urban landscapes, working with communities to create new village spaces, new town gardens and squares and designing landscape for patients and vulnerable women at a refuge.

She was a trustee of the Centre of Contemporary Art in the Natural World for over 10 years until it became a CIC and has continued as an adviser since then. She wants to encourage the public to engage with the natural world, whether though art, play, science or having fun.
