THE National Trust has asked for volunteers to help re-chalk the Uffington White Horse over the May bank holiday weekend.

To keep the world-famous landmark white the 3,000 year-old horse is re-chalked once a year.

On Sunday, May 4, and Monday, May 5, instructors will be on hand to help and provide equipment from 10am to 3pm.

Trust ranger, Andy Foley, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to provide real hands-on help in looking after our local heritage. It is quite a spectacle even for those who aren’t actually pounding the chalk so we’d love as many people as possible to come along and join the fun.”

This year, there will be opportunities for people of all ages to get involved.

To book a place call the National Trust Estate Office at Coleshill on 01793 762209.
