A window into the world of the National Trust for Scotland Rangers at St Abbs.
Thursday, 14 April 2016
We had our staff start of season meeting today, and, as is now the tradition, we went to visit another site relatively close by. To look at the site, see how it is managed, and see if there's any ideas we can bring back to St Abb's Head. This year we went to Low Newton - a reknowned Northumbrian beauty spot and nature reserve, which, like us, is visited by tens of thousands of people a year. Low Newton and the Newton Pool Nature Reserve, are owned and managed by our sister organisation, The National Trust.
We were lucky with the weather, just a bit of drizzle, but it didn't dampen our spirits, and a good day was had by all. Here's a picture of our motley crew, from left to right: Jill Grozier, Lizy Smith, Margaret Renstead, Jack Laws, Liza Cole, Jean Bennet, Ernie Cox and Fran Evans. Behind the camera was Bill Longden, who doesn't like to have his picture taken.
