We are delighted to welcome Patrice McGhee to our Parc Slip Visitor Centre team!
Patrice joined us in February as our new Catering and Visitor Centre Supervisor; we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Patrice and the Visitor Centre!
Patrice had this to say:
“I studied textile design at art school in Dundee, Scotland. During this time I started working part time in a nightclub to fund my studies. It was from here I began my career in the hospitality industry. I worked in many different gastro pubs in Scotland as a General Manager before moving to London. I missed the countryside too much so moved to Cardiff where I am now happily married.
I rekindled my love for food again over the past few years and being vegetarian you have to be a bit creative with ingredients so when I saw the post come up at The Wildlife Trust I jumped at the opportunity. It suited my lifestyle as we try to live sustainably. We have an allotment where we grow our own fruit and veg which we use in our cooking and making presents for friends and family.
My aim for Parc Slip is to create proper home cooked food and be involved in events going on around the reserve, utilising what’s around us!”
Make sure to pop in and say hi to Patrice next time you are visiting Parc Slip!
