Can you help us improve Carmarthenshire’s paths?

We are searching for volunteers to survey routes across the county


12 February 2024

Wales’s largest walking charity, Ramblers Cymru, have been awarded funding from Carmarthenshire County Council’s allocation of the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund [SPF] as part of its levelling up agenda. This funding will be used to help communities in Carmarthenshire improve their paths and access.


Working together

Ramblers Cymru is appealing to Carmarthenshire’s walkers to support our work and join up as path survey volunteers.

Amy Goodwin, Ramblers Cymru’s Regional Officer for Carmarthenshire said: "We are delighted to be working on this project with Carmarthenshire County Council to survey the path network across the county to identify their condition and gather valuable information to deal with issues, making the routes more accessible for more people to enjoy the benefits of the outdoors."


Get involved

To help us do this we're looking for the support of volunteers, so if you are passionate about paths and could help us do some surveying, we would love to hear from you.

If you want to get involved with Ramblers Cymru you can respond to our path questionnaire or register as a volunteer:

Amy added: "Our paths are gateways that connect our communities and help us get out into the natural environment and this work will help put walking at the heart of our communities."
