The Eastern Community Engagement Forum has launched an attempt to set up a 'Winter Weather scheme' to help the elderly and vulnerable during severe weather. If you are interested in volunteering or know of someone that might need some help, please see the attached letter.
The newly created 'Riccall Round Walk' is now ready to go. There are two walks, both of around 5 miles each, so you can do either or if feeling fit and active - both! The route has been way-marked and leaflets are currently available to be picked up in Nisa, the Post Office, the Regen Centre, the Council Office and both pubs. We have applied and have been granted some additional funding by the Heritage Lottery, to provide 5 new information boards, which can be placed at strategic points of the walk and within the village, giving historical information and any other information of local interest, allowing us all to share in the heritage that Riccall has to offer. You should see the new boards being erected in the early part of 2014.
The Council plans to launch the walk with local walking groups in the spring. If you are interested in joining in with the official launch, then please do get in touch with us. In the meantime, enjoy the walk and we'll let you know when the information boards are ready.
