You may remember last year we introduced to you some new interns in the form of Leila, Kim and Stuart. They did some great work across the South Lakes working with the Coniston, Hawkshead, Woodland and Upland team over an 8 month period. With their internship ending just before Christmas we recruited two new interns in the form of Jasmin and Paul.
Paul and Jasmin
They've been with us just over two weeks now and have been thrown into a few different projects including fencing, walling and some drain building at Wray Castle.
Getting stuck in with some walling!
Over the next 8 months they'll have the opportunity to learn lots of different skills and learn about the way we manage our property in the South Lakes, from all angles. We're also pretty sure that they'll get to learn the importance of never being separated from your lunch (a key ranger rule), the value of cake (especially when working with the Upland team) and the best way to dry boots so they're not quite as cold and horrible to put on the next day!
Hopefully they will enjoy their time in the South Lakes as much as Kim did and gain lots of useful experience along the way.
