Anna Wyse – a green blue activist

Anna Wyse2

Another OW celebrating a Wells anniversary year is Anna Wyse (née Steinitz OW 1987). Anna is Environmental Manager at MDL Marinas Ltd. which runs 7,000 berths in the UK, Spain and Italy and supports the Green Blue, an environmental awareness campaign which Anna had previously project managed for the RYA. She is also a sailor herself, of a Royal Baltic Storebro 32.

Anna describes herself as a ‘lobbyist and left wing activist’. She been a councillor in the past and stood for the Greens in this year’s local elections. She campaigns widely, e.g. recently taking issue with stereotypically coloured childrens’ clothes for her daughters, Francesca & Emma. She played violin at Wells and I am interested to see that she still takes an interest in music education, supporting opponents of suggestions that music theory should be less rigorous.

Good luck to Anna - the world needs people who get up and make things happen – even if they are not always the things one would chose onself.
