Volunteer rangers to patrol common land in the Vale
VALE’S commons will be patrolled by volunteer rangers from now on.
The rangers have signed up to a scheme organised by the Vale Commons Council to improve the usability of the wide open spaces and pathways.
Peter Blake, president of the Vale Commons Council, said the rangers will be firm, but fair.
‘Rangers are special constables with the full range of police powers while acting on the commons.
‘Rangers will use a light touch, and aim to be approachable, but will take firm action on those rare occasions where it is necessary.’
The initial squad of volunteers is made up of six people, but that number is expected to rise.
If you are interested in becoming a ranger for the Vale Commons Council, call Mr Blake on 07781 106715.
