The long summer days are slowly fading away, but here’s a ray of sunshine to warm your day. A big thank you to the wonderful Ell Lewis for being our volunteer voice of September. Always happy and full of life, she is truly a delight to work with.

Ell is a resident of High Wycombe and has been a volunteer with Chiltern Rangers for just over two years. Her love of the outdoors and passion for making the community a better place for people to walk and live in is her reason for volunteering.

Ell’s best day out was when helped to chop trees down and watch them fall to the ground! Ell also really enjoyed being part of our 10th birthday celebrations at the Old Town Hall in High Wycombe. Thanks Ell for being part of our interview panel!

Outside of volunteering, Ell loves to play football and would recommend anyone thinking of volunteering with Chiltern Rangers to go for it. “I would just go for it and don’t be afraid to try something new.”

Daisies are Ell’s favourite species!
