Carrie's First Month at Lochbroom Woodfuels

Carrie has been working at Lochbroom Woodfuels for a month now. Her favourite thing to do is go on deliveries as she is able to see lots of different places, checking the moisture content of the wood is also something she enjoys. Carrie is learning to drive a forklift and has learned to stack the logs and how to test our wood (the moisture content). 

Carrie hopes to gain confidence when talking to customers on deliveries and learn new skills. In the future Carrie see's herself learning to drive a lorry and of course have some sheep!
