Commenting on the new appointments, Duchy Head of Rural Carol Hawkey said: “We are delighted to welcome these talented individuals to the Duchy team. As with any business, the introduction of new people and new ideas is an exciting prospect and I have no doubt that all three of our new recruits will add real value to the work of the team. I look forward to working with them in the months ahead and to developing the strength and depth of the team still further as we move forward.”
