Leanne Atkinson has returned for a second season as a Coastal Ranger on the New Forest National Park coastline.
But this time the joint-funded post between the New Forest National Park Authority and Hampshire County Council will run for 12 months, thanks to extra support from ExxonMobil at the Fawley Refinery.
Most of the officer’s time in summer is spent putting on events for children but her post does provide a person to monitor the coast path eastward from Milford-on-Sea.
Ms Atkinson is reported as saying: “Iâ€™m excited to be returning for a second year as the Coastal Ranger, itâ€™s a fantastic role that involves working with people of all ages about a subject that I am passionate about.”
