Covering topics as requested.  There is a big screen with a laptop plugged in but there is Wi-Fi so bring your laptop/tab/phone so we can all be looking at the same thing at the same time.

Set up a Ramblers account on the website, using it to find the starting point for walks when you don't have the Ordinance Survey map or if you're not confident with grid references.

 

Bring a map along and see where a grid reference is.  Spot the open access land.

 

How to find footpaths and their numbers on the Cornwall Council website; when you report a footpath problem you'll need to give the footpath number.

 

Which parish do you live in.  Find planning applications in your area which will affect your footpaths, how to comment on them and keep track of them.  Who are your parish councillors.

 

 Is the footpath you’re going to report on the definitive map; where is the definitive map on the CC website.  What is the definitive map.

 

What is a 130a and when it should be used.

 

An introduction to Definitive Map Modification Orders; we've got The Fort, Benuick, St Issey as a very good example.

 

Have a look at Camel Ramblers Facebook page.  We know how to set up the notifications so you don’t get anything except Camel Ramblers.

 

We’re in the meeting room on the left as you go in the main entrance of The Exchange, Molesworth Street, Wadebridge   PL27 7DS   (opposite corner to large Cornwall Hospice Care Shop)

  Tea/coffee facilities available all day, bring lunch or pop out for something

 

We’ll be there are all day because we have a committee meeting in the afternoon starting at 2.00.
