Leah is our wonderful new Duty Manager and is in charge of all things management when it comes to the smooth running of the Garden and our Community Building. Leah is your first port of call if you have any questions regarding booking the building or garden for an event or if you're interested in volunteering. She's very friendly, so please don't hesitate to drop her a line.
Spencer is Chair of the Trustees Committee. Outside of The Phoenix Garden he is a freelance Theatre Director as well as a keen gardener. He remembers stumbling into the Phoenix Garden on a summers evening and thinking it was the most magical place in London. Now he lives locally, he really values the garden as a resource for local residents and workers. I make the website and posters look pretty and have been known to attack unwitting children with face paints!
Norman is the Secretary of The Phoenix Garden. He has worked as a consultant and trainer in community development and criminal justice since 2005. He is a qualified teacher, social worker and probation officer and has worked in criminal justice and social care for the past 32 years. He has worked on the Advising Communities advice line, is a national assessor for the VISIBLE quality standard and a trainer for the Advising Communities range of training programmes.
Garrard is the committee's Treasurer when he's not working for the NHS. He's been lucky enough to live in Covent Garden for 30 years and has been a volounteer and trustee of the charity for most of them. A keen gardner, The Phoenix Garden has always been a place of retreat & calm for him and for many people like him who don't have their own green space. He is particularly fond of the garden at dusk when the birdsong is at it's finest!
Councillor Vincent has recently returned to the Phoenix Garden fold. She has been serving her local community for over 20 years and was instrumental in securing vital funding for our new community building. Sue has fond memories of bringing her now grown up children to play in the garden and is committed to ensuring that future generations can enjoy it for years to come.
