Minor Maintenance on Isle of Wight Paths
www.mmiwp.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
