A typical day starts with a quick catch up with tea before we head out into the field. I am using GPS to create informative maps using GIS software.

I was invited along to an education planning meeting and before I knew it I had been asked to dress up as a gypsy fortune teller and asked to co-ordinate a Girl Guide trip.

I had a chance to take a 6-month sabbatical - this is where I chose. There isn’t a typical day, I could be making bonfires, cutting trees, hedge laying or dressing as a Victorian.

Situations vacant: Tour guide leaders

Friends of Devil's Dyke (FODD) help look after over 2,000 acres of glorious downland, woodland and farmland. Without them the Devil's Dyke estate and people's enjoyment of it would be a lot poorer. FODD can be found working at Devil's Dyke, Saddlescombe Farm and Newtimber Hill, Fulking Escarpment, Wolstonbury Hill and Southwick Hill. Why not join them?
