A Northumberland organisation is looking for practical, outdoors people to help maintain one of the county’s best attractions.
The St Oswald’s Way Steering Group looks after the popular long-distance walking route and is trying to recruit volunteer rangers to ‘adopt’ sections of it.
The volunteers will inspect sections of the route and carry out minor improvements such as cutting back overgrowth and waymarking.
The sections are five miles long on average and run from Warkworth along the Coquet Valley to Rothbury, then southwards to meet Hadrian’s Wall near Great Whittington.
The group’s route manager, Martin Paminter, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to help and experience the Northumberland countryside.
“The work will be vital in keeping St Oswald’s Way in good condition as we don’t have the resources to keep an eye on the path at present.
“The volunteers will need to inspect their sections at least twice a year and we will provide training and expenses.”
People interested should email Martin on firstname.lastname@example.org
