Parish Tree Wardens
Rushcliffe Borough Council are looking to appoint tree wardens in local parishes and are appealing for people to contact them to support their aim.
The Borough hope to appoint tree wardens in every parish in their area, and will launch the project at Rushcliffe Country Park, Ruddington, on Saturday June 22, between 11.30am and 3pm.
Tree wardens can be appointed by their local parish council as the parish contact for all things tree-related in their area. The tree warden's responsibilities would include: reporting early signs of pest, disease and vandalism; as well as gathering information, surveying and recording information about trees important for wildlife and the heritage of the parish; and identifying opportunities to plant more trees. For further information, click Tree Wardens.
Mr Paul Phillips, the Environmental Sustainability Officer for the Borough, would be happy to pass on more information to anyone interested. He can be contacted on 0115 914 8595.

Plumtree on Route of Nottinghamshire's Biggest Bike Ride [click for details]
Plumtree on Route of Nottinghamshire's Biggest Bike Ride
Over 4000 cyclists will take to Nottinghamshire's roads on Sunday 24th June this year to help raise money for Nottingham Hospitals Charity - the new partner for the county's biggest bike ride.
Cycle Live is one of several events that will contribute towards Nottingham Hospitals Charity's Big Appeal, hoping to raise £4million over four years for Nottingham Children's Hospital.
There are five different routes all starting from the Victoria Embankment and all taking in Plumtree.
Nottingham Hospitals Charity's Chief Executive, Barbara Cathcart, has signed up for the ride herself and says: "I am absolutely delighted that our charity is joining forces with Perfect Motion for Cycle Live in support of our Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital. The hospital helps around 60,000 children each year and is an incredibly important specialist regional paediatric centre.
"Our supporters are already signing up for the event including many of our amazing staff from the Children's Hospital. Personally, I can’t wait to try out the new routes. A great way to see Nottinghamshire and support a great cause!"
At the same time, event owners and organisers, Perfect Motion have been making changes to the five routes that feature as part of Cycle Live. Riders can still choose one of five different options - 25mile, 50mile, 75mile, 100mile and 125mile, each with its own 'very Nottinghamshire' identity.
The longest and most 'severe' Sheriff route is 125 miles in length and this year takes in six larger hills, known as 'category climbs', the longest of which is over 7km in length. It’s certainly not for the faint-hearted, with riders having to overcome a total of 1,500 metres of ascent.
