Rohan Dunster Supports Holnicote Estate Rangers

National Trust Holnicote Estate – Outstanding contribution by volunteer rangers recognised by leading outdoor retailer

In recognition of the outstanding contribution that countryside volunteer rangers have made to the conservation of the Holnicote Estate, Rohan Ltd have generously sponsored every volunteer who has completed more than 50 hours volunteering during the past year.

In a special presentation held at Horner Farm on Thursday 14 September, Dunster Country Store manager Richard Sussex presented each of the 35 volunteers with vouchers to spend on outdoor clothing & equipment – Rohan are specialists in technical walking and travel clothing and equipment.

Volunteering is an integral part of the work of the National Trust in delivering its core objectives and the support of volunteers is nowhere more appreciated than on the Holnicote Estate which is the largest countryside property owned and managed by the National Trust. In the previous 12 months volunteer rangers have contributed more than 14000 hours playing a vital role in supporting full time staff in delivering a range of nature conservation objectives and day to day management tasks. An increasingly important role for volunteers has become monitoring and survey work which has included the Healthy Hedgerow Project (a project to evaluate the condition of hedgerows for dormice) as well as veteran tree, bat and butterfly surveys and an ongoing programme of bird ringing.

Richard Sussex, manager of the Rohan Dunster store, which is the largest Rohan outlet in the UK said, ‘Volunteer rangers freely give up their time to help keep Exmoor special for millions of visitors every year and I am very pleased that we are able to show our support for the significant contribution that they make to the local area’.

Paul Camp, Volunteer Manager said ‘We are hugely appreciate of the support we get from our volunteers but it is something extra special when their contribution is recognised from outside the organisation and by such a respected brand as Rohan’.
