09 Sep 2009
Six local high school pupils gained valuable work experience whilst spending their days carrying out practical environmental and conservation tasks with John and Kate, the two Project officers and the team of volunteers.
During the summer months of May, June and July, Steel Valley Project hosted three fortnight periods whereby two Year 10 pupils each from Stocksbridge High, King Edward VII and Bradfield High participated in the practical work days of the environmental team and volunteered their time. They got involved in work such as public footpath clearance, bird box making, gate repairs, office/admin, litter clearance in local woodland, woodland management, tools & vehicle maintenance, schools habitat management events and project planning.
