OSWESTRY PARISH PATHS PARNERSHIP is extending a warm welcome to anyone who would like to help us keep our local footpaths open. We meet on Wednesdays at various sites around Oswestry. We install gates and footbridges, repair stiles and help to clear overgrown paths. Full training is given and everyone is welcome (you do not need to be a member of the Ramblers). If you are interested or would like more information please contact Peter Danby on 01691 661714 or Peter Carr on 01691 780722 or email to email@example.com
So far, many broken down stiles have been replaced in both Oswestry and Oswestry Rural Parishes and many new gates installed. Now the group is negotiating with landowners to create a stile-free route from Oswestry to the Racecourse through the Brogyntyn estate. We have recently surveyed paths east of Llansilin and will be working with Shropshire Council to sort out any problems.
THE SELATTYN AND GOBOWEN PARISH PATHS PARTNERSHIP. There is also a group covering the Gobowen and Selattyn area. They meet on the 2nd Friday of every month at the pavilion on St Martins road at 10am. They have cleared undergrowth, repaired stiles, put up waymarkers and investigated blocked footpaths. For more info, see the Selattyn and Gobowen Parish Council website
The groups are funded by Shropshire Council whose staff lend a hand on the more technical projects and also carry out the vital role in getting permissions for the work to take place.
You do not have to be a Ramblers’ member to take part in Parish Paths Partnership (P3) activities. Anyone can join in. A good opportunity to get outdoors, explore your local area and keep open footpaths that have been there for centuries.
