As part of Hertfordshire Year of Volunteering, CMS is launching a number of new ways for people who love the outdoors and want to make a positive difference to their local environment to get involved. We’re launching the CMS Rights of Way Volunteers.
As a county we are well served by an extensive network of public rights of way, giving us all access to the beautiful, varied and productive Hertfordshire landscape that surrounds our homes and places of work.
If you are interested in walking, off-road cycling or horse riding we would like you to help us to manage and maintain our footpaths, cycle tracks and bridleways to a high standard. Simply get in touch and find out how to join our ever growing network of volunteers and benefit from our award winning approach to training and support.
Teresa Heritage, Cabinet Member for Public Health, Localism and Libraries said – “It’s great to see our officers working together to engage our communities in their work. These new roles will provide opportunities for our residentsto: gain new skills, meet new people and get involved in healthy outdoors activities. This is what the “Year of Volunteering” is all about.”
Derrick Ashley, Cabinet Member for Environment, Planning and Transport said – “For residents who take great pleasure from walking (as I do), cycling or riding through Hertfordshire’s countryside this is a great opportunity to contribute to the upkeep of our Footpaths and Bridleways. The options to take part mean that however much or little time you have available there will be something you can do and in the knowledge that the whole community will benefit”.
