Sustrans are looking for volunteers to help with the maintenance and promotion of the national cycle routes in the UK, making life better for cyclists in the local community.
They are launching a specific volunteer programme to look after the local off road cycle routes in Canterbury and Whitstable and are looking for local people who would like to contribute to their community by being Community Route Champions and are looking for people to cover a small part of their local area.
You will monitor and maintain the everyday off-road cycling routes such as the Crab & Winkle Way that are important for so many essential journeys such as getting to work, to school or the shops. From clearing overgrown vegetation to cleaning signs and reporting potholes to Kent County Council Highways Department you’ll be doing practical activities to keep these routes usable. Use your existing knowledge and experience to improve your local infrastructure and everyone’s journeys.
As part of Sustrans national Volunteer Programme you’ll receive training and support from your local Sustrans Volunteer Co-ordinator and your fellow Champions.
This opportunity is a great way to learn new skills and to make a positive impact on cycling and walking in north Kent – find out more on the Sustrans website. You don’t need to be a cycling pro and you’ll get all the training you need. It’s a great way to meet new people and even to get your foot in the door of new career opportunities.
Apply on line today and who knows where next week might take you!
