Ian’s story

My initial response to the question of ‘Why Volunteer?’ is that I was seeking some physical activity which would help to improve my fitness and for which I would not be discouraged from if the weather conditions were unfavourable.

Having now attended for several weeks, in a variety of weather conditions, I can add that I find it enjoyable and rewarding to be learning from the rangers and other volunteers about the many and varied aspects of countryside management and of the flora and fauna of the area and now also have a better understanding of the amount of work that is required to provide and maintain the facilities that are available around the Greenock Cut area.

It is rewarding to know that each days effort contributes to the on-going plan to improve the amenity for the benefit of the many other users of the Greenock Cut Visitors Centre and surrounding land.

I must also add that the staff are friendly and knowledgeable and will even make a well earned cup of tea for volunteers.
