June 2016 Walking with secateurs
On Saturday 11th June a group of seven volunteers cleared stiles and paths of overgrown vegetation in the Dilhorn area.
Why not come and join us on the 10th September. The next area to be cleared will be announced nearer the time. Please bring a pair of secateurs with you!
Monks Way GR 924499
On Tuesday 9th August Alan Bell and Howard Caton planned to install a post and plaque in memory of George Shufflebotham on the Monks Way. This was a footpath very dear to him and the memorial is a tribute for all the hard work he did in maintaining paths and writing his books of local walks. At the same time they will do some tidying up, strimming and clearing.
However, after putting in a lot of effort to prepare a deep hole, a local resident appeared, and let them know forcefully that the siting had not been approved by the Parish Council on behalf of the residents, and that they would be unwise to continue.
They filled in the hole again, and took away the plaque until an agreed site can be found.
