Hi, I’m Becki, Chief instructor at Roadford Lake. I have worked for South West Lakes Trust for 4 and a half years. I spent my childhood messing around on the beach and was always far happier outside in the fresh air than shut up indoors. When I left school I knew that I want to work outside so did a NVQ in outdoor sport, gaining the experience and qualifications I needed to start in the outdoor industry.  I love working with lots of different people with different experiences leading to my position with South West Lakes.

I love working at Roadford because I work in an environment that is beautiful in all weathers, alongside an awesome team of countryside and activity staff.

My average day at Roadford can be quite varied but my general duties include lead sessions, managing staff, running the campsite and ensuring are facilities are up to standard.
