Following the announcement of adventurer and photographer Henry Iddon as brand ambassador, Cumbria outdoors writer and ‘Fix the Fells’ project manager Tanya Oliver has become the latest name to join the ranks at Bramwell International.
Tanya grew up in Kent but fell in love with Cumbria at an early age and now shares her time between her two loves, Sussex and Cumbria, the latter inspiring her to write her book “From High Heels to High Hills” – The story of one woman walking in the Lake District in her own style. Tanya also runs a popular blog http://www.heelwalker1.blogspot.co.uk which celebrates both the highs and the lows of walking. In addition she writes for Lakeland Walker, The Great Outdoors, Cumbria Tourism. She also podcasts for Walks Britain, amongst others, and her ‘High Style’ clothing and gear reviews have been a huge hit with walkers and non-walkers alike!
As Programme Manager at Fix the Fells, Tanya is responsible for managing and co-ordinating the whole programme from the practical work to the budget, communications and fundraising. Tanya said,
“My role is mainly office-based but I join the rangers and volunteers as often as I can out on the fells so I keep my feet on the ground and make sure I get my hands dirty. In fact, that is the part I enjoy the most - working on the fells with everyone. It is great fun even when the weather isn’t kind to us!”
Bramwell International Director, Alastair Bramwell said,
“When the opportunity to work with Tanya arose, we jumped at it. Tanya lives for the fells and walking and with spending half her time between office and fell she needs equipment that can survive the harsh hill climate, but also look and feel comfortable in an office environment or around town. We were convinced that our Meindl shoe and Source sandal products would suit her perfectly.”
As is evident from her prolific output, Tanya is passionate about walking and the outdoors and has completed all the Wainwrights. She also loves high heels!
