Day 36 of 2014, was also day 2 of the Skills for the Future programme. Whichever way you looked at it -it was a very wet and very windy day So windy in fact that we were a man down, as the Brownsea Island trainee was advised to stay on the Island rather than risk not getting back on again.
Undaunted, we went shopping. For waterproofs and wellies. I have to say a big thanks to the lady at SCATS who spent time sorting the trainees out with their kit, and to Rachel of DWT fame, for assisting with colour co-ordination matters – and the provision of some great home made Brownies!
Fully kitted out, it was a case of testing the combination of jackets, over trousers and wellies with a walk around the Kingcombe nature reserve. All returned safe and sound – and dry. I’m back in the Office tomorrow, busy catching up on emails and phone calls and have absolutely no idea what the image will be for the day!
