all enquiries to the Parish Clerk
Shropshire has nearly 3½ thousand miles of footpaths. With dwindling resources, the County Council is unable to maintain all of these. They have invited volunteers to help and Selattyn and Gobowen is the latest parish group in the Oswestry area helping to look after a large network of rights of way.
This P3 group (Parish Paths Partnership), was set up a year ago and has already carried out works such as clearing undergrowth, replacing parts of stiles, way-marking and discovering a backlog of problems including blocked rights of way. It is a small, friendly gathering that meets in the morning of the second Friday of the month. No special skills are required. Tools are supplied and the County provide insurance and offer expert support for larger jobs such as installation of kiss-gates.
It is a good way, and a healthy way, to get to know the local area which is more extensive than one might imagine. At the same time there is the satisfaction of ensuring that footpaths which have existed for hundreds of years continue to serve the community.
Anyone interested in joining the group should contact the coordinator :- Michael McKenna on 07565 528821.
