Mel Cannon

Melanie, her husband and their little boy couldn’t believe their luck when they discovered the forest school sessions at Eastwood. They love going every week, getting muddy, singing by the fire and doing important business with sticks.

Mel became a trustee in 2019, as a way of getting more involved with the Tinderwood Trust and supporting the charity. She is Head of Content Design for the Department for Work and Pensions, and has worked for the National Trust, JustGiving and the Sunday Times.
