Roundwood Park Careers Investigator Day. 5th February 2020 Featured

Roundwood Park School

I was invited back again to the Roundwood Park Careers Investigator Day on the 5th February 2020. This the third time I have been asked back. I was a pupil here many years ago, I left 6th form 1982. The school has changed in many ways. I don’t remember when I was there having a great careers advise. Today it is a lot more organised and they appreciate people coming in to talk to the student about their experiences.

I was here as a freelance photographer, others were from Film Industry, Banking Sector, NHS, Construction, Engineering, Law, IT, Food & Drink Industry, Journalism, Civil Service, HR, University of Hertfordshire, Hertfordshire Police.

The morning was set up to talk to 4 groups of 6 children 20 mins per group. I had time to explain my journey over the past 10 years. With time for Q&A at the end of each group. Managed to answer the questions put to me. I look forward to next year and another crop of interested students

Dan Shelley Master Thatcher Featured

D.G.Shelley Master Thatcher, Hatching Green, Harpenden 15th August 2019

It was a great to see and photograph a thatcher at work today. Dan Shelley is a sixth generation thatcher based in St Albans. www.hertsthatcher.com

If you think this is a dying art you might be surprised to hear that they are as busy as they can be. The average cottage will take 2 people 5 weeks to complete. A good thatcher will have work booked for 1 year and sometimes 3 years in advance. They work throughout the year and rain does not stop them working.
