Welcome to the new recruits
The gardeners and wardens office is full to the brim of late as we welcome four new recruits - Becky, Sarah and Cari from Harper Adams University and Jess, our new careership warden. The Harpers are volunteering with us as part of their course and we are lucky enough to have Becky and Sarah for a year and Cari for 6 months (before she jets off to New Zealand to complete her work experience there). Jess will be with us for two and a half years as she starts her career in the countryside by completing the National Trust's own training scheme, attending college to support her hands-on learning. This week they are joining Richard, one of the wardens, and some other volunteers on a hedgelaying course with expert local hedgelayer, Karl Liebcher.
