The Eyebrook Walk

    About

    The walk covers a gentle 5 miles of pathway and minor roads around the beautiful Eyebrook Reservoir initially through a limited access Nature Reserve; much of the perimeter is an SSSI. The reservoir is a major trout fishery, an important habitat for water birds of all types and has a historic connection to the Dambusters who practised over its surface prior to the Dams Raid in 1943.

    The walk will start from the lay-by alongside the reservoir below Stoke Dry between 1000 and 1200 on Sunday 18 Aug and should complete by 1400. Dogs on leads are welcome.

    The route lies clockwise round the Eyebrook Reservoir starting from the lay-by on the side of the reservoir at the foot of the hill below Stoke Dry GR853963 (what3words – compiler.stuns.spoon).

    The walk is in aid of LOROS and other charities supported by the Rotary Club of Uppingham.

    LOROS (the Leicestershire and Rut- land Organisation for the Relief of Suffering) is a local charity providing care and support within Leicester-shire and Rutland. LOROS charges no fees for its services, which are available to all local people regardless of their ethnicity or faith. The Charity relies upon the generosity and support of individual people, organisations and groups as well as Trusts and the business community of Leicestershire and Rut- land in order to continue to fund the service.

    The Leicestershire and Rutland Hospice is a specialist centre providing skilled nursing and medical care, supported by physiotherapists, occupational therapists and social workers, in an environment that recognises the particular needs of patients and their families. It provides expertise in controlling pain and other distress-ing symptoms as well as offering emotional, spiritual and social care, which allows patients to live as normal a life as possible. Working with the whole family enables both the patient and the family to cope with the changing situation so that they are able to make best use of the limited time together available to them. LOROS treats patients from the age of eighteen years and upwards.

    The Rotary Club of Uppingham Charitable Trust supports a number of different charities each year – both International and domestic. During the previous year, in addition to LOROS, the Trust has supported the following major causes:
    Ukrainian refugees
    Local food banks
    Dementia awareness and Bereavement counselling
    Provision of a new defibrillator in Uppingham Market Place
    A new personnel hoist for Rutland Sailability
    The Rotary Foundation and its “End Polio Now” Campaign
