Who We Are Meet the team Samantha Beastall Sam is RAD's most recent trustee appointment having joined the Board in July 2017. One of our staff team, Joe Dugdale, suggested that she might like to become a RAD trustee as a result of working with her as part of Wessington Neighbourhood Development Group. She works for a consultancy and her Director is an author. She's the first point of contact for the business as Office Manager and with a global client base there is never a dull moment. Sam is a Parish Councillor and Chair of Wessington Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. As well as her busying life in the office she also has a small livery yard and two of her own horses. Any spare time she has is spent walking Diesel, her Rhodesian Ridgeback and holidaying in Scotland with her husband. As much as she loves Derbyshire, they are hoping to move to Scotland one day. No doubt they will then spend their holidays in Derbyshire!
