West Lexham - Team
Before embarking on the West Lexham project, Edmund was busy making a living running a longstanding landscape design business. He was one of the original team behind the Secret Garden Party, in charge of turning the site into a suitable place for a festival, and desiging the site layout. He also helped to establish Clearwater Revival, the UK’s leading natural swimming pool company.
Edmund has an MSc Dip in Sustainable Architecture: Advanced Energy and Environmental Studies, through which he studied cutting-edge renovation techniques and knowledge of renewable energy at C.A.T. Edmunds’ family owns West Lexham and this is his vision that we are bringing to life....
Lucy is drawing on her experience in conference production, social enterprise and integrative arts psychotherapy to develop West Lexham as a place where people can come to rest, grow, learn and connect with each other. She is so enamoured with this part of Norfolk that she recently moved to live in West Lexham village with her partner and little cat.
Lucy has a personal interest in joining the dots between creativity, wellbeihng and nature, and in learning new ways to use this for group facilitation and collaborative leadership. She us excited to be working with Edmund to cocreate and host a space for transformational programmes and events, and for enquiry into experiential learning and education.
Nigel is a retired ex military man with 22 years of experience in logistics and loads of patience. He is highly organised and driven to produce the best that can be. A real asset to West Lexham he can always be depended on and frequently saves the day!
Nigel has lived locally for the past 8 years and loves the peaceful way of life Norfolk offers. Luckily for us, he also enjoys a challenge and the variation that is West Lexham. In his spare time he tends his vegetable plot and helps look after his various pets ( 2 cats, a dog, 20 canaries and 2 cockatiels).
Hedley is responsible for administration and book keeping at West Lexham, helping us to run a tight and tidy ship. He brings to the project a broad and varied experience in commercial systems analysis and software design.
He was attracted to the project by its aim of offering a creative and transforming space, and as an Anglican priest he shares West Lexham's passion for spiritual growth and renewal. A keen amateur engineer using recycled materials, he has built an efficient solar heating system for his workshop, and his current target is a helical wind turbine for urban areas with low wind speeds.
