Your Village Needs You!

Start the new year by offering your services to one of the village clubs or associations. There is currently no Rainbows group (for girls age 5-7) in Whissendine and the village would welcome somebody to step up and become a leader. UPDATE: Thank you for stepping up, we now have a Rainbows group!
Whissendine Environment Group (WEG) is always looking for volunteers to join working parties to maintain the area. In addition, volunteers can be trained in hedge laying / coppicing at Rutland Water. The training is fully funded. See the WEG page for more details.
