We are pleased to introduce Harry – our new Assistant Project Officer!
Harry will be joining Toby, Nick and Miguel in the River Restoration Delivery Team. He has already been put to the test supporting our work at Acacia Hall restoring the Darent, and out in the Medway installing NFM measures.
Let’s leave Harry to introduce himself:
“My big love of the outdoors, and in particular rivers, meant I leapt at the opportunity to join the South East Rivers Trust as an Assistant Project Officer! I studied environmental science at University of Plymouth. After graduating, I worked with an environmental consulting firm in a role focussed on investigating watercourse pollution events, before moving onto SERT in November 2019.”
“Shortly after joining the Team, I was out on site for 10 weeks assisting with the delivery of a restoration project on the River Darent in Central Park, Dartford. Somewhat of a proverbial plunge into the deep end! The project was a great eye-opener and learning curve in terms of seeing the restoration and enhancement works the Trust performs whilst out on site. It was a massively satisfying project to be part of and I’m very keen to see the site come summertime!”
“In my spare time, you may well find me in a skate park somewhere (weather permitting), as skateboarding is one of my biggest loves. I’m also a big fan of music and have been a bedroom musician for over a decade now and have recently started performing live (after a beer or two). I am also a keen fly fisherman, having spent many summer days on the River Dee in Scotland fishing for salmon and trout.”
“I’m very excited to be part of the Team and am massively motivated at the chance of contributing to the ongoing restoration and enhancement of rivers and their catchments in the south east!”
