LOOKING AFTER THE COUNTRYSIDE

You are going to read an article about a warden working for a conservation organization. Six sentences have been removed from the article. Choose from the sentences A-G the one which fits each gap (1-6).

The National Trust is an organization whose aim is to conserve the British countryside. Gill Page visits the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales and talks to one of the wardens employed by the Trust to look after the beautiful areas it owns.

Common sense. (1) _______. "And you definitely need to good at handling people, because you're continually dealing with farmers, visitors, conservationists and building firms."

(2)_______. About 80 people applied for the post as National Trust Warden for the Lleyn Peninsula. In the end, Gareth's local knowledge and farming experience won him the job, despite his lack of formal training.

"I find it particularly helpful that I still farm with my parents and that I can deal with farmers on the same level and be aware of their problems. (3)_______. His farming life also means he is well able to cope with the physical demands of the job - erecting fences, planting trees, building walls.

Since he has been with the Trust, Gareth says he has come to understand more about nature conservation. "When I was a youngster," he recalls, "I used to pick and press flowers, collect butterfly larvae and old birds' nests. And I thought to myself recently, where would I find all those flowers, the birds' nests the grasshoppers now? (4)_______. It's not the farmers' fault - they were just doing what the government told them."

Gareth says that, when he started his job, farmers and conservationists were set against each other. Both sides wanted things done their way. Now they are talking and can see each other's point of view. (5)_______.

Conservation is one of the main aspects of Gareth's work, along with public entry to the Trust's land, tree planting and maintenance, and meeting the Trust's tenant farmers. "My role is to make sure jobs get finished, with as little fuss and as economically as possible. What I enjoy most is seeing projects completed, although about half my time is spent on reports, signing bills and so on."

Gareth is certainly keen on his job and despite never being off duty, he obviously enjoys every minute of his work, especially talking to the public. (6)_______. "It's the attitude of some people I dislike," he admits. "They just walk into the area, demand everything, then walk out again as if it's their absolute right. Having to be nice to those people gets on my nerves!"

But as Gareth says, it's all down to common sense really. So if you've got plenty of that, and you like the idea of an outdoor job, you might think of applying to become a warden like Gareth - but don’t expect a job to be available on the Lleyn Peninsula for a good many years!

 

A. "Also, they can't take me in about anything!" he says.

B. "We're at the crossroads and there's a small step needed to join them together," says Gareth.

C. Most of them, anyway.

D. That's what a National Trust Warden needs, according to Gareth Roberts.

E. From the first small headland acquired, the Trust now looks after a spectacular range of coast, countryside and historic landscapes.

F. It's really become clear to me that farming has affected the countryside.

G. Gareth was born and bred on the Lleyn Peninsula and worked on his parents' farm until he married.

Complete the sentences below. Use NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS from the passage to fill each blank space.

7. According to Gareth, farmers and ___________________did not agree with each other from the beginning.

8. Despite his lack of____________________, Gareth was offered the job.
