Meet Neil

A long term aim of Head of Countryside, Neil Reeves, was to restore the historic Victorian Gardens of Burrator Lodge at Burrator Reservoir.

His ambition came to realisation when he was approached by the West Devon Explorer Scouts who were looking for a worthy project for their Chief Scout platinum and diamond awards and the service element of the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
