Another Resounding Success For Wildlife Warriors

The October 13th Wildlife Warriors event was another great success as the events continue to go from strength to strength.

The focus of the latest event was hedgehogs. The children were able to build hedgehog hibernation houses to help our line side spiky friends to find shelter through the winter period.

The children then made their own teasel hedgehogs to take home with them to place in the garden in the hope that the teasel seeds may grow wild flowers next year.

A great time was had by all and a big thanks goes to Caroline Bowler for putting so much enthusiasm and effort into running these events. We would also like to thank Amar Patel who runs the newsagents next to the post office in Mountsorrel, for sponsoring the event and also Everards Breweries at Fosse Park for donating materials for the event.

Mountsorrel Railway Wins Two More Awards

We are pleased to announce that the project has won a further two more awards for its community work! The first was a Mountsorrel Ripples Community Award and the second is a commendation for service to the community from Mountsorrel Parish Council. It is good to see how much local people value both the educational and recreational benefit the restored Mountsorrel Railway will bring to the local area.

Don't Miss the Final Trackbed Tour of 2012

Project volunteer Robert Turlington is running has final trackbed tour of 2012 on Sunday October 14th at 2:00pm.

The tours have proved popular over the summer which is why we have decided to squeeze in one last tour before the autumn weather sets in. "It is a wonderful time of the year to see the Mountsorrel Railway" said Robert. "The leaves are starting to turn golden and the low sun creates quite a magical feel to the railway."

Tours cost £3 per adult with accompanied children going for free. The tour will only be run if sufficient numbers book in advance, so please make sure you contact Robert by phone (0116 2396742) or email to book your place.
