Clarissa + Nia on site dusk 3 Dec 2019
The charity is delighted to welcome Nia Huw to the organisation to work as Project Officer with the Coetir Anian / Cambrian Wildwood project. This is following the departure of Deiniol Jones, who has moved abroad.

Mat Mitchell, Chair of the board of trustees, thanks Deiniol for his outstanding work, “Deiniol was a marvellous asset to the project and was key in establishing it in its early stages, turning his hand to a large variety of tasks both on site and in the office. During his eight months with us, he has helped us to achieve so much. We all wish him the very best for his next ventures.”

The Project Officer role has evolved slightly now that our very busy schedule of work on site has eased off. This year has seen the big contract for blocking 11 kilometers of drainage grips, the construction of a compost loo and a shed using roundwood timber framing, along with the ongoing monitoring of our growing herd of wild horses. Building on the social media presence that Deiniol has established throughout this time, Nia will be expanding the communications work as well as taking responsibility for other areas of our work and helping with duties on site.

Nia has a background in the teaching profession, working in Primary Schools in Ceredigion for seventeen years. “I am really pleased to welcome Nia to the team,” said Project Director Simon Ayres. “We are lucky to attract such a capable person. She is bringing a wide range of skills and a good deal of energy to the work. We have a great team and will continue to achieve real benefits for wildlife and for the young people who participate in our education programmes, as well as everybody else who visits the site and participates in the project activities.”
This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
