Minor Maintenance on Isle of Wight Paths
www.mmiwpp.co.uk
This is to assist Isle of Wight Public Rights of Way by dealing with minor issues.
HOW IT WORKS:
Small issues are reported and volunteers take on the task.
If you notice a minor maintenance issue please report it to rightsofway@iow.gov.uk. They will pass it to me and it will be put on the website. Please give a discription, position and, if possible, a photo.
It there's a job near you and you think you can tackle it, please email me at tim@rookley.net. When completed, please let me know and, if possible, send a photo.
Thank you,
Tim Marshall
PS To date we have resolved over 40 issues. Well done everyone!
