Student Lucas Roche from Annecy has been doing a four week work placement with Ubico, the council’s waste and recycling provider. He spent 3 weeks working in the nursery and his last week out and about in the parks and gardens. Lucas very much enjoyed his time here and was delighted to have been part of his host family’s winning team at their local pub quiz!
Another student from Annecy, Camille Lemaitre, also worked from 29 July to 23 August with the Community Rangers and helped out with the annual Paws in the Park.
Two Cheltenham girls have spent the month of July working in Annecy on the summer work placement scheme. Flora McFarlene from Pates School worked in the Youth Information Office and Phoebe Harris from Balcarras School in the parks and gardens division. Both were very enthusiastic about their stay and found it a rewarding and valuable experience.
