Terry Austin (FPS) and Rachel Jones (Ranger)
Here’s some interesting background on Rachel Jones, who you may have seen busy at the Pond over the last few months:
Originally a local lass from the Odiham area, Rachel has lived in New Zealand for 9 years. Since returning to the UK, she has worked as programme manager for a busy young persons outdoor centre. Rachel then decided to turn her diploma into a BSc and is now in her second year as a student at Sparsholt College, studying Wildlife Conservation.
Having done her work placement with Hart Countryside Services and volunteered with the team, she was given the opportunity of a 6 month role as seasonal countryside ranger to help the team with the many tasks at this busy time.
Rachel says ” I love working with Hart Countryside Services and Fleet Pond Society on the great variety of tasks. It’s a real pleasure to be part of the team looking after this area.”
