After 5 years the Trust waved goodbye to our Admin Secretary, Madeleine Baker, who retired last Thursday. Madeleine joined us in 2011 just after the Trust had taken over the office space in Threemilestone; she quickly set up the office and has not stopped since!
Celebrations included a lunchtime buffet with trustees before the last Council meeting where Madeleine was surprised with a beautiful cake and bouquet of flowers. Last weekend a small group of staff and trustees ventured down to Sancreed Beacon where they enjoyed a fascinating guided walk led by Mike Hawkey (Property Trustee). It was wonderful to meet the four Dartmoor ponies that live on the Beacon, enjoy the views and see the work being done to manage this very important site. After all that walking it was time for some refreshment and a cream tea was thoroughly enjoyed!
Huge thanks to Madeleine for all of her hard work, here’s wishing her a long and very happy retirement!
