Kathy was appointed to the role of Director of The Trafalgar Way in January 2018. Her background in building business partnerships, creating and running her own business and her love of games and fun are elements she intends to draw upon in developing The Trafalgar Way for future generations.

Kate cycled The Trafalgar Way in 2017 and, as a keen naval historian with a background in marketing and logistics, is looking forward to helping out The Trafalgar Way with social media and content creation.
"My love of naval history began with a visit to HMS Victory aged 8. My parents bought me a book on Horatio Nelson and it spiralled from there. In fact, in 2012 he was my specialist subject on Mastermind! Now, I'm studying for an MA in History, focusing on the Royal Navy in the eighteenth century.
In 2005, as a Sea Cadet, I was part of some of The Trafalgar Way plaque unveilings and in 2017 I cycled the Way, so now know its history (and hills!) like the back of my hand. I was amazed whilst cycling how many people had never heard of The Trafalgar Way, or even seen the plaques in their town, and so I spent a lot of time chatting to everyone I could about the history behind it, both in person and online.
Lapenotiere's journey really is an incredible story and I feel very privileged to be a part of this project!"
