Work experience at Imber

Lauren in charge of the office

For us regular users of Imber we are not used to seeing Lauren sitting in the Office Manager’s chair. She is normally the very welcoming face of our Club working in our bars , restaurant and at functions.

Lauren is seeking a career in Events Management and it is clear already to all those that know her that she will be exceptional at it. In building her knowledge and expertise Lauren is taking advantage this week of the opportunities available at Imber for work experience and looks like she is thoroughly enjoying it.

The Bulldozers are at Imber

At long last the work has started on the Rifle Range to make the area suitable for use as a Children’s Nursery. The work is expected to take up to about 10 weeks and after its completion we can then start the work on building the Nursery. Exciting times for us.

We will see this year a complete transformation of our rear gate area , coinciding of course with the flowering of the 500 Daffodils at the roundabout planted by one of our committee members and Imber Volunteer,  Jim from the Dog Club.

The rifle range was used for practice shooting up to the late 1990’s. However  following changes in legislation (The Firearms Amendments Act 1997) brought in as a result of the tragedy at Dunblane Primary School, the range was closed.

The site has remained fairly much derelict since then and now this year will reopen as a Children’s Nursery.

The ‘Rear Gate’ Roundabout

Last night I bumped into one of our members Jim McCulloch from the Imber Court Dog Club. Good news, his ankle is on the mend and he had just been back in the Imber Pool for his weekly game of Volley Ball.

At our last committee meeting Jim volunteered his services to tidy up our Rear Gate Roundabout and in his word ‘plant a few things’. For those that use the rear gate this roundabout has been a bit of an eyesore and in need of some love and attention.

Well no more.

Jim reports that the roundabout has been worked upon and has now been planted with 500 Daffodil bulbs. A huge thank you on behalf of our Club to Jim and his fellow volunteers for making a difference.


I am looking forward to this coming spring with the first sighting of the mass of daffodils and produce from Yogi’s Kitchen Garden.
