MOWS is looking for local volunteers to become Footpath Rangers along the Wreake Valley Way, a heritage and environment trail between Melton Mowbray and Cossington Meadow near Syston.
Our Rangers take regular walks along short sections of the route in their local area. They look out for and report maintenance issues, and help us publicise the trail in their communities. It’s a great way to stay fit and enjoy the countryside!
Being a Ranger can be fitted in at any time to suit other commitments. There are no fixed hours – do what you can when you can. We will give you plenty of support and provide all the equipment and training you need.
If you are interested in getting involved, call Paul Dadford on 07870 238688

Volunteers from the Melton and Oakham Waterways Society have been hard at work on the river around Melton Mowbray in the aftermath of Storm Doris.
The Society’s plans for a green leisure corridor, based on the remains of the former Oakham Canal to the north of Oakham, continue to develop. Further announcements about the plans are expected later this year.
