It’s the time of year when academic minds turn to the future. Exams are being sat, applications to new schools written, prospectus’ perused and for some; the looming scary world of work finally arrives. In light of this particular aspect we hosted three students from Magnus school for a week’s work experience, just to open their eyes to the sorts of jobs we Rangers get up to, week-in and week-out.
So our three brave girls embarked on garden contract work for North Kesteven District Council, Conservation at Millennium Green and Forestry at Skellingthorpe Old Wood!
Friday 12th July was a lovely evening in the wood with the Bridge Youth Group (re-visiting again from last year). We did some essential firelighting skills (marshmallows!), built some dens, got our fingers dirty, felt the rain and talked about some of the challenges we’re facing in the wood. If you know someone who might be interested in work experience with Hill Holt Wood give us a call on 01636 892836.
