During the spring and summer school terms Nathan is more often found outside working (playing) with the school groups staying on site. Nathan lives in Loughor with his son, Joshua (who has a cracking left foot) and his cats, Bob and Merv (who don't). He supports the Nottingham Forest and eats lots of biscuits.


Jan Manley, Office Ranger

Jan has worked in a wide range of roles in the past including admin, health, social care, welfare, and education. Jan’s job here is largely office based. She makes sure that the school groups that come to stay with us know what to bring, when to come and where we are! She helps to look after the site, and loves feeding the lambs!


Tim Davies, Sheep Ranger

Tim grows various fruit and veggies in the allotment and cares for the animals; including chickens, ducks and a goose. He can often be found with the sheep following him around and if it’s raining you may well finding him sheltering (or hiding) in the poly tunnel, but don’t tell anyone. He enjoys running, growing his own food at home, playing board games and exploring new places.


Abbie Jebson, Education Ranger

In her spare time she is often found gigging in various venues across Swansea, writing music, surfing or climbing.
