Deadwater Valley Trust appoint new Community Ranger
Julie Reid has joined the team with immediate effect and is already relishing her new role.
On the news of her appointment, Reid said:
“I moved to Bordon many moons ago as my father was stationed at Prince Phillip Barracks. I attended the local infant and primary schools before progressing on to Mill Chase. After a short time away, Bordon drew me back when I began looking to buy my own home.
“After almost 20 years in childcare I undertook my Forest School Practitioner training in 2016 and have been the Forest School Leader at Woodlea Primary School for the last year. A role which will complement my new position.
“There have been many changes to the area since I first came here and I am excited to be part of preserving and enhancing our town’s Green spaces – for residents present and future.
“As the Community Ranger I see my role as reminding residents of the wonderful and diverse outdoor space that we are privileged to have. I will be popping up at local events, leading and supporting activities in both the Hogmoor Inclosure and Bordon Inclosure alongside helping local schools and nurseries to utilise what is on their doorsteps.
“I am looking forward to finding out how the people of Whitehill & Bordon wish to use their green spaces and helping to draw more people into the Inclosure. There is a fantastic team of rangers and volunteers at the Deadwater Valley Trust and they have all made me feel very welcome.
“I will often be walking the Inclosure with the third canine addition to the Deadwater Valley Trust, Inca, so please stop me and say hello – I’m always excited to hear your thoughts and ideas.”
