Introductions - Lorrie Marchington - (17/12)

The final member of our new team is Lorrie Marchington who has a profound interest and commitment to renewable energy and cooperative principles. She is a long-standing member of many green organisations (Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Women’s Environmental Network, etc) and a cooperative member using the phone coop, smile banking, SUMA and cooperative retail. She was also an original investor in the first two windfarm cooperatives.

When the opportunity arose to promote a local scheme, she was keen to become actively involved. Lorrie is particularly keen to help develop communications in the community and with shareholders, and to promote initiatives to pump-prime renewables, both to students and the population at large.

She has lived in New Mills for over 15 years and works part time at The University of Manchester.
