Do you have a few hours to spare?

Volunteers bigger

If you’ve got a few hours to spare once a month and you’d like to help maintain one of our most valued walk and cycle ways in Midlothian then get in touch.

Valued volunteers

Midlothian Council’s Ranger Service is looking for volunteers to look after the Penicuik to Dalkeith walking and cycle path.

Lots to do

Supervised jobs would include maintaining the path, thinning trees, clearing vegetation and managing the pond.

For anyone aged 18 and over

Our volunteers are absolutely indispensable. It’s a great opportunity for anyone aged 18 or over who enjoys the outdoors and would like to maintain this seven mile route, which is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

No experience necessary

No previous experience is required and on-site training will be provided.

Meet once a month

Volunteers meet on the third Tuesday of each month at a pre-arranged meeting point along the route. The times are from 10am to 3pm.

Good transport links

Volunteers will be expected to make their own way to and from the meeting place.  There are good public transport links.

Equipment provided

All tools and equipment will be provided.

Dress appropriately

Volunteers should bring a packed lunch, waterproofs and wear stout footwear.
