A New Face Joins the Team.

LogosHello

My name is Jonathan Jarvis and on 1st May I joined the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership as its newest member of staff.

New to the Area

As someone who is new to the area (both geographically and in terms of the type of project we’re running) I am looking forward with great excitement to learning about the area around my new home.

 

Although I have joined the team to deal with the financial claims processing in relation to the Heritage Lottery Funding, I am very keen to learn about the area, its history and its unique features, and to get involved in the project in as many different ways as possible. I have already enjoyed some excursions in and around schemes which will be supported by the project, and I have enjoyed every one.

I’m also greatly looking forward to getting volunteers involved in the program, and doing my best to pass on some of the enthusiasm I feel for opening up the area to local people and visitors.

Those involved in the project may well encounter me dealing with any general project enquiries or offering assistance anywhere to ‘help out’.

 

Meet and Greet

I hope to meet those involved in the project soon and look forward to working with them in relation to their diverse interests and areas of expertise.

 

Circular ~ Walks and Rides

I will also be taking on the responsibility for our circular walk blogs, so if you know of any good circular walks in the area – one of those well kept secrets! – please do let me know and I will do my best to incorporate it into the series.

About jonoatousewashes

Programme Support Officer for the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership (OWLP) scheme. I will be supporting the 3-year delivery phase of the Heritage Lottery Fund grant-aided scheme which is run in close cooperation with a wide range of local, regional and national partner organisations. The various OWLP projects focus on: conservation works to historic and natural environmental assets; improving community participation & engagement with the landscape and its heritage; increasing access and learning opportunities; and providing more opportunities for training in traditional land management skills. The overall aim is to leave a long-term legacy for this fascinating and unique landscape, in the process creating tangible improvements to social, economic and environmental aspects of this landscape, its heritage and communities.
