The new Carbon Landscape Programme Team started this week and hit the ground running with visits to a number of the Carbon Landscape Sites.
The new team, based with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust in Wigan, will be leading the way on the Carbon Landscape and will be the key to driving the partnership and the projects forward over the next 5 years. The role of the Programme Team is to support the partners and also to deliver a number of projects on the ground. There are six members of the new team:
- Anna is the Programme Manger
- Lydia is the Access and Events Officer
- Tony is the Restoration Officer
- Jenny is the Community Access Officer
- Becky is the Trainees and Support Officer
- Steve is the Support Officer
Furthermore, the last few weeks has seen a number of other dedicated officers starting with project partners –Steve and Paul started at Greater Manchester Ecology Unit, and Miranda started at City of Trees.
This week saw all of the new starters across the partnership get out and about visiting some of the Carbon Landscape sites and getting to know the various projects. There were visits to the Fenscape Project in Wigan, areas of the Mosslands in Salford, and Woolston Eyes in Warrington. They were also treated to the full Roundview experience with partners from the University of Manchester.
The new team are excited to get working across the Carbon Landscape with partners, communities and members of the public. If you think the team can help you and your Carbon Landscape community then please drop them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check out the volunteering links here on the website.
