Salmon & Trout Conservation has a new HQ and welcomes new staff

Salmon & Trout Conservation has a new HQ

S&TC are celebrating a new chapter in their esteemed history this month, ushering in a bright future with the addition of two new team members, all while settling into a new dedicated head office.

S&TC recently moved into their first dedicated HQ, located in the beautiful village of Burcombe near Salisbury. Despite a long and prosperous history of 115 years, this is the first time that S&TC has their own official home. Nestled in rural Wiltshire, with the banks of the picturesque Nadder a mere stone's throw away, the new office provides the prefect setting with which to continue S&TC's great work.

Paul Knight, Chief Executive of Salmon & Trout Conservation said,

"These are exciting times for S&TC.

Although we are 115 years old, this is our first dedicated HQ, having been hosted by the Fishmongers’ Company for more than a century and, more recently, by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust in Fordingbridge.

We are very grateful for the support we have received from our two hosts over the years, but now we look forward to working from our own offices with an expanded staff, building on the considerable success we have achieved in recent years."


Salmon & Trout Conservation welcomes new staff

Alongside a new home, S&TC also welcome two new members of staff, into two brand new roles.

Melissa Elderfield joins the charity as Communications Manager, bringing with her 10+ years of experience from her varied background in digital marketing and strategic communications, including the not-for-profit sector.

Guy Edwards joins S&TC as Fundraising Manager, bringing over 12 years of business development experience from an agency background, as well extensive sales expertise.

Their work will play a pivotal role in the continued success of the charity, ensuring that a wider audience is reached and a strategic approach is taken to securing on-going support. These exciting developments are in line with the recent re-brand, and improved digital presence, of S&TC.

Paul Knight added,


"We continue to base our policies on sound scientific evidence, either collected by our own scientists, or from professionals and academics commissioned by us, or from external peer-reviewed sources.

Now, we will be able to let people know more about our work through Mel Elderfield as Communications Manager, and better finance our scientific department through Guy Edwards’ fundraising efforts."
