Volunteers are needed to help expand the walking group at King’s Wood in Corby.

The Wildlife Trust is looking for people who have a few hours to spare during the week to take people on the regular walks held at the nature reserve.

Sarah Clarke, the trust’s community and education assistant, said: “Visiting King’s Wood is always an adventure as you never know what you are going to see.

“Joining a walking group offers a great way of socialising, meeting new like-minded people, spotting wildlife and getting a bit of exercise too.”

King’s Wood is a remnant of the once great medieval Rockingham Forest and it boasts two beautiful ponds, spectacular shows of wildflowers in spring, many interesting birds such as tree creeper, woodpeckers and tawny owl and all sorts of weird and wonderful fungi in the autumn.

People who volunteer will never be expected to lead a walk on their own and training and support will be given.

If you are interested in the role of walk leader and would like more information please contact Sarah Clarke on 01604 405285 or email Sarah.Clarke@wildlifebcn.org.
