Welcome to the Gower blog where you can catch up with what our volunteers have been up to over the last few months. Leading our team of dedicated volunteers is Claire Hannington, our Area Ranger. She runs a daily and monthly programme of volunteering, planning the work to make sure there’s plenty of variety and interesting tasks to get involved with, from hedge planting to dry stone walling even the odd bit of scything.
