Walking for Health – Volunteer Walk leaders wanted
This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who enjoys walking and has time to lead or assist on one of our many walks in Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge. Our walks are offered 6 mornings a week (Monday – Friday, and Sunday) and range in length from 30 – 90 minutes. Positions are available for volunteers who can commit on a weekly or twice monthly basis. The role comes with a degree of flexibility.
We welcome interest from people who are friendly, welcoming and reliable. You would ideally work with other leaders to provide a safe walk by leading, “middle marking” or “back marking” during the walk. Walk leaders need to be observant and sensitive to the needs of others. We are currently recruiting in the Horley and Earlswood areas.

Warning about Oak Tree Processionary Moths
Horley Town Council have reported that unfortunately Oak Tree Processionary moths have been spotted in our local area. The caterpillars of Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) are pests of oak trees, and a hazard to human and animal health. OPM was first accidentally introduced to England in 2005, and is subject to a government-led programme of survey and control to minimise its population, spread and impacts.
The Forest Commission have produced an information leaflet. DO NOT:
- touch or go near caterpillars or nests
- let children or pets go near caterpillars or nests
- try to remove nests or caterpillars yourself
Report it to the Forest Commission e-mail it to email@example.com, or telephone 0300 067 4442
