A top Shropshire beauty spot is looking for more volunteers. The National Trust currently looks after 12 miles of the 18 miles that makes up Wenlock Edge with a team of two staff and very small group of volunteers.
The team is looking to expand so that they can do even more conservation work and engage more with their visitors. Wenlock Edge is a really special part of the Shropshire Hills, this limestone escarpment is a Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) particularly for its geology, and it can even be seen from space.
Assistant Ranger, Kate Price says “Volunteering is a brilliant way to get fresh air, exercise and meet new people. There are lots of volunteering opportunities at Wenlock Edge such as; engaging with visitors and sharing our story; helping with the practical conservation work; wildlife surveying and more.”
The team are holding a recruitment evening on Tuesday 20 January from 5pm – 7.30pm at Priory Hall in Much Wenlock, for anyone interested in finding out more about what is involved in volunteering.
