Isle of Wight Ramblers receive Queens Award for Voluntary Service (2/6/11)

I've just heard that Isle of Wight Ramblers has been awarded this "MBE
for the Voluntary Sector" for its excellence in volunteering.

The citation reads "Campaigning for greater access to the countryside
and encouraging community participation in walking activities"

It'll be awarded later this year in a special ceremony with the Lord
Lieutenant of Isle of Wight.

It is richly deserved. As part of its "Access for All" campaign,
the Isle of Wight Ramblers has now undertaken projects at Freshwater
and Alverstone Nature Reserves to improve footpath access for all
users. Its "Donate a Gate" scheme has created 30 gates replacing
stiles. Some £60,000 has been raised so far to implement these

Well done to all the volunteers and members of the Isle of Wight.
Everyone at the Ramblers is very proud of you.
