Plym Valley has gained two new Long Term Volunteers to assist with the day to day running of the estate. Lucy Tozer and Jonathan Noades have now settled in to the volunteer accommodation at Miners’ Cottage.
Lucy is working alongside Steph Rodgers as a Community Engagement Assistant. She is new to the area, having moved from the south coast of Cornwall, where she volunteered with the local National Trust, Wildlife Trust, Cornwall Seal Group and the RSPB. Education and engagement is Lucy’s main interest and she is keen to discover the abundant wildlife that can be found in Plymbridge Woods and the Upper Plym.
Jonathan is assisting Plym Valley Ranger Peter Davies with the upkeep and preservation of this naturally diverse estate. Having recently graduated with a degree in Environmental Science from the University of Plymouth, he is already familiar with the area. Jonathan has taken a dedicated interest in the vast array of archaeological artefacts around the Dewerstone area and on the Upper Plym. He looks forward to working on preserving such treasures, as well as undertaking a variety of tasks, to conserve the natural vitality of the landscape.
If you see either of them, please do not hesitate to stop and say hello.
