Jo Osborne

Secretary

Jo Osborn is a geographer by background which led to a career in water – she is Head of Communications at South East Water.

A member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, Jo enjoys using her communication skills to support local community interests.

Jo lives in Wingham, but the garden is a perfect half way spot on the way home from work. She loves open water swimming (in the summer!) and enjoys a long walk, particularly if it involves an excuse for a pub lunch with friends at the end.

Gulliver Immink

Trustee

Gulliver Immink has had a portfolio career – in an oil company, in the savings industry in the City and running his own very small IT company.

He is fascinated by Faversham, now living right in the middle, just a stone’s throw from the Garden, but previously just outside the town since 1982. He is a Trustee of the Faversham Creek Trust, the Sea Cadets and sits on the Environment Committee of the Faversham Society amongst other things.

Gulliver loves playing tennis, cycling and taking his dog for long walks, occasionally dropping into a local hostelry for an uplifting drink as well as indulging his granddaughter. ‘It’s all about community’ and there’s nothing better than meeting and talking with people from all walks of life, something at which Faversham and particularly the Garden excels.
