Volunteers perform a vital role in helping to maintain The Ridgeway through an ongoing programme of maintenance and improvements.
Tasks include vegetation clearance, installation, and repair of signs, gates and bridges and some workshop tasks. Led by staff from the National Trails team, tasks take place most weekdays and occasional weekends. All tools and training are provided and the tasks are a good way to meet like-minded people. Alternatively, volunteers can become ‘monitors’ by adopting a 2-3 mile section of a Trail, walking it once a month and reporting back any problems.
There are currently no volunteering vacancies on The Ridgeway
