Introducing Rachel Jones – Our Seasonal Ranger

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.”
