One of our hard-working volunteers, currently in Saint Lucia, is a retired civil engineer … using his experience to support the historic restoration work of the Saint Lucia National Trust …
Here’s yesterday’s video and report in the local media:
“Apostles’ Battery Restoration”
The Saint Lucia National Trust has undertaken a major restoration exercise at Apostles battery on Morne Fortune. The project is being executed under the expert supervision of Godfrey Weir who is a civil engineer from People and Places. The Saint Lucia tourist board sees the activity as part of a major development project which will take place at various sites on Morne Fortune.”
Just goes to show that even if you’re not a teacher or a health care worker, there’s likely to be a project with people and places where your skills and experience could be be put to good use!
