Mount Group Riding for the Disabled are on the lookout for new recruits following their move to a new home.

The group, who celebrated their 30th anniversary this year, have relocated across the village from their Oakham Road base to Somerby Equestrian Centre, run by Gail and Tony Stimson, in Newbold Lane.

Following the move they are looking for more volunteers to help with the riding sessions and are holding a training and induction day on Monday, September 5 from 10am to 2pm.

Anyone interested in volunteering can go along on the day to meet the group and watch some demonstrations to see what they do.
