This week our new Young Root's Project Officer Ruth joins the TCV team. Ruth will be enabling young local people with disabilities to explore, discover and conserve the heritage at Sale Water Park.
This is an exciting project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, where young people will learn practical skills in conservation, including hedgelaying, coppicing and tree planting. The young participants will also work alongside local community partners to investigate and discover the heritage of Sale Water Park.
By engaging in this project, young people with a range of abilities will gain invaluable practical conservation skills, alongside skills in team work, communication and project planning. We will also be recruiting a Volunteer Officer and Duke of Edinburgh Volunteers from local schools to assist with this exciting new project.
