Work Placement Opportunity – Exmoor Hill Farming Network
June 29, 2016

Are you or someone you know (aged 16+) looking for work experience in farming, Exmoor and helping farmers succeed?

It offers £3,000 to an individual or group with an idea for a business venture relating to agriculture, forestry, conservation, horticulture, craft tourism or any outdoor land based activity.

The award was set up four years ago for young entrepreneurs who wish to stay working on Exmoor, particularly within farming and land based activity including food, drink or tourism.

Previous applications included ideas as diverse as making cider and developing a herd of pedigree cattle. Two of the four winners so far have been young people setting up their own agricultural contracting business. Last year’s winner, Matthew Sharpe, set up a business in woodland management with the intention of using small-scale equipment. This is so that he can operate within environmentally sensitive areas without disturbing habitat and landscape.

Volunteer Community Drivers
December 30, 2015

Volunteer community drivers to help run people to medical appointments etc.

If you are interested in volunteering as a driver please do get in contact with Caroline Harding  AT West (01643 709701) or Mike Ellicott (01643 831500), volunteer co-ordinator for the Exmoor Medical Centre. There is a lack of drivers on the moor for this much needed service. Fuel costs are paid for door to door, so if you think this is something you would like to get involved with then you would be helping many people in the community.
