Whitehaven and Ennerdale Ranger.
The best thing about my job is how different my two work places are, from mountain top to rocky shores the people inbetween are so helpful.
I work on the north western edge of the Lake District National Park and my role is very varied,from finance spreadsheets to hedgelaying and events. I manage the Whitehaven coast project, part of a larger partnership project called the colourful coast, see our website www.colourfulcoast.org.uk here our aim is to engage the community in the conservation of natural and built heritage.
In Ennerdale I represent the NT to our tenants and neighbours as well as the usual countryside tasks, here too is a partnership project called Wild Ennerdale, see the website at www.wildennerdale.co.uk
