Footpaths and Bridleways Review Days

The local footpaths and bridleways are well used by the local community and twice a month people gather informally to walk/run along the footpaths and bridleways.  This walking and running is an ideal opportunity to identify any footpaths and bridleways that might need intervention.  

Please contact the Clerk to provide details of any issues with the footpaths and bridleways in Oliver’s Battery.

Although the informal twice monthly walks/runs are not organised by the Council, please contact Fab de Liberali if you are interested to take part in this exercise.
