As a community action group we are doing everything we can to improve and enhance this area, and to encourage more people to enjoy it. So we want to find out who uses it, when and why – and we need your help!
Would you like to be a part of Sketchley Valley People Count? We are looking for volunteers to count people in the area, for just 15 minutes at a time. When we have enough counts we’ll analyse the data and publish it.
Register now and we’ll send you everything you need to take part – you choose where and when to do your counts to suit yourself.
We all know and love Courting Stiles but some people don’t know about it, so let’s see if we can spread the word this bank holiday weekend. The weather forecast is good and it will be the perfect opportunity to enjoy the wildlife, trees and flowers.
If you can, go down and enjoy a walk or ride, take some friends who don’t know it, or tell them about it on Facebook or Twitter, and take pictures to share – using hashtag #courtingstiles.
If you’re feeling energetic Courting Stiles is a good starting point for a walk through to Burbage Common and Woods, or in the other direction to the Ashby Canal and Limekilns. You can get refreshments at the Limekilns, the Hansom Cab and at May’s Cafe, or a takeaway drink and snacks from the Texaco garage on Burbage Road.
