15 Oct: Kingsley Holt K3
The Staffordshire County budget cuts are being felt hard by the rights of way team, and working party volunteers. Our footpath team & many others in the county have not done necessary work to keep paths open which benefit ramblers & dog walkers alike. In my opinion this is false economy and in the long run will damage our footpath infrastructure irrevocably.
More positively, on 15th October there was a complaint about a stile that was too dangerous to use and a group of us made our way to Kingsley Holt K43 where a stile was overgrown and damagedWe cut back a holly bush and fitted a complete stile with two steps. Two local dog walkers complimented us for doing this work, but it is a big shame that somebody had to report something as dangerous before anything is done about it!
