|Posing for a team photo - not a bad place to be working!|
We’re coming to the end of our third week, and have had lots of information thrown at us and met lots of new people. So far we’ve, had a 2 day tour of the property (which wasn’t as much fun for the slightly travel sick member of the group), done fencing, walling, strimming, worked with the South Lakes Conservation Volunteer Group, been on a First Aid course and a Fire Safety Course, and a lot of admin type stuff in between!
Throughout the course of the next 8 months we’ll be working mainly with the Hawkshead, Coniston and Woodland Rangers, as well as getting experience with the Upland Footpath Rangers, and helping out on Fun Fridays at Wray Castle and weekend patrols.
We’re looking forward to the next 8 months here, and getting stuck into all the roles of a South Lakes Ranger. Look out for us and don’t be afraid to come say hello!
