Fix the Fells are delighted to launch their new Young Rangers volunteer programme. The scheme is open to young people aged between 14 and 18, and offers the fantastic opportunity for young volunteers to get involved in all aspects of Fix the Fells work: from helping to maintain the Lake District’s extensive upland path network, to repairing and constructing paths using traditional techniques and materials, and even to trying their hands at other countryside tasks such as dry-stone walling and hedgelaying. The scheme is led by dedicated volunteer Neal Davies, working closely with Fix the Fells volunteer development ranger Matt Tweed.
Following the first Young Rangers day on the fells, Matt commented “It’s great to see younger people getting involved in caring for the incredible Lake District landscape, and a real pleasure to be working with such an enthusiastic and friendly bunch. Thanks to those who have joined us and I am looking forward to lots of fun and rewarding days ahead out on the fells.
