About Purba

I am delighted to work for the NBN as I have had a life-long interest in nature and conservation and am a keen fell-walker and enthusiastic wild-camper.

Despite my love of nature and the great outdoors, this is the first environmental organisation I have worked for.  My career in public relations and communications, until now, has promoted the work of organisations as varied as symphony orchestras, a university, the Arts Council of England and a local authority.
