Date : 26 February 2020
Location : We are meeting half way between Par and Fowey on the A3082 road. Park at Penhale Farm on the south side of the road down the farm access lane SX102526. Please do not park in the adjoining campsite.
We will be putting up 3 gates, making good faces of hedges, and possibly putting up flag signs. Note that there is almost no vegetation clearance this month.
Our work at Duloe is now completed. Tony and I were the only ones who turned up last month and we had a long day in cold but pleasant sunshine finishing off gates, stone steps and a parapet rail on the bridge. Cornwall Council will need to make a diversion order to take the path around remaining obstructions such as a large farm shed, which is across the path.
This month we are moving a few miles to the west to Fowey, in Restormel territory. We have not worked in Fowey before. The path we are working on is on the top of a hill and has good views down to the coast. The farmers will be digging out gaps in the hedges and we will face up the sides with stone and erect 3 gates. We will also put up a couple of flag signs if available.
REACT will only be successful if there are enough people to lend a hand, so if you are able to come you would be very welcome. No previous experience necessary.
Bring appropriate tools if you have them but essential tools will be supplied. Don’t feel obliged to stay for the whole day. If you could spare a couple of hours it would be much appreciated. Please bring a packed lunch and drinks.
Please let others, particularly those without internet/email facilities, know about these projects. Most people enjoy our work days and have the satisfaction that they are making a small but significant contribution to improving Cornwall’s public path network.
