Not that we’re giving his age away, but Nick remembers the days of his youth when there were no computers, and kids like him mostly spent all of their time outdoors. He still makes a point of getting out into the forest – both on and off the trails. Which might be the reason why he joined the SWT team a few years back. Since then, Nick has been a very valuable contributor to the group. Those beautiful bridges along the pathways? Those were built by Nick. And his involvement has certainly brought him to the belief that we need to do a better job of getting our youth out working on the trails – once they’re out there, they’ll realize just how great it is. And maybe, just for a minute or two, they'll forget all about their devices.
Nick is a great reminder of the incredibly important role volunteers play in keeping the Wakefield trails safe and accessible. It really does take a village to take care of a village. Listen to his words, en francais, on the podcast.
