Ever wondered who is who at Loch of the Lowes? Meet the 2014 team!
From Left to right, back row first: Blair , Cherry , Dan , Jonathon , Vicky , Emma the Ranger, Ainoa and Kirstin .Missing are Caroline and Emma the VC assistant, and Ben our trainee VC assistant.Well there’s ranger Emma (second at bottom left ) , and her dedicated osprey watch team- SPO night watchers Ainoa and Kirstin, and residential volunteers Dan,Vicky and Yvonne. As well as keeping the birds and their environment safe and clean, we look after all five of the other local SWT reserves.
The rest of the team keep the visitor centre running 7 days a week and run events and all sorts of public engagement. There is Caroline Hendry , our part-time Centre Manager ( she also looks after our sister centre at Montrose) and Jonathon Pinnick, the assistant manager, who also runs all the important behind the scenes stuff. Then there is Cherry, who has many years experience both at Lowes and at the Falls of Clyde visitor centres, and this year she’ll be helped in peak season with front of house duties by Emma ( not the ranger -another one!) and two young trainees Blair and Ben, as well as the many local volunteers who generously give a few hours a week to help out.
That’s our team for 2014- the Loch of the Lowes family of six staff and more than 100 volunteers of one kind or another. We look forward to meeting you in 2014!
