A Path For Everyone

The path cannot be just a nature reserve, or just a dog walking route, or just a mountain-biking trail, or just a walkers’ ramble. It has to be able to cater for everyone, hence the tagline – “more than just a path”. I cannot change that and I do not want to. We have kept ourselves in the middle of all the different needs and resisted going down one, at the expense of the others, ever since we started some thirteen years ago. There is no point in people being angry at me because the path does not cater for what they specifically want. We all have to share.

This week there were five of us. Victoria went ahead to stain the rest of the benches.

Super job and they look very inviting. Sustrans suggest a bench every 500 metres or so. I think we have done OK.

The rest of us carried on widening the path as it goes from cutting to embankment. We do not need to go anywhere near as wide now, because the path naturally drains. However, people still need to be able to see a good way ahead of themselves to feel at ease whilst using the path.

Before…

After…

This is our Snowdrop clearing starting to come up. We are always behind other snowdrops for some reason.

And just listen to the noise from the birds!!

The geocaches have been found 111 times since going active at the end of January. We are now replacing the containers with something a little stronger and more suitable.

Painted rocks go out for Valentine’s weekend so have fun searching for them.

Had to postpone the Adventure Workshop next week. Double booked with a day out in the Cotswolds.

We have had over 64,000 visits to the blog and we are starting to sell our merchandise (hence day out in the Cotswolds to pick up).

That’s about it, I think. Patron if you want to help us with fat balls and other bits. We do actually need new fat ball feeders. Sends a little bit of fuzziness down our spines when people care.

Feel free to join in or just pop along for a chat and a coffee.

Until next week!
