Whissendine Environment Group (WEG) is looking for Volunteers willing to go on a rota to maintain the area and be trained in hedge laying / coppicing, a 2 day course over a weekend, which will take place in March 2015 at Rutland Water. The training is fully funded (thanks to a grant from The Cory Environmental Trust in Rutland and the Parish Council); you just need to be able to get yourself to the training and commit to going on a rota for the hedgerow maintenance. If you are interested please contact one of the committee for further details. UPDATE 27 Feb 2015: “As so many of the volunteers were unable to do this weekend’s hedge-laying course at Rutland Water, we are postponing the training till the next hedge-laying season. If you are interested please contact one of the committee for further details.”
If you are interested in helping WEG, even if you have just a little time to give, or if you are interested in joining the group please contact either Andrew or Sally Moyce (Whissendine 406 ), Rob Comber (Whissendine 375) or Penny Stimpson (Whissendine 811).
