The Wiltshire Council Rights of Way Service has a long and successful record of working with town and parish councils, local community groups and volunteers who help to look after and maintain our 6000 km (4000 mile) public rights of way network. Tasks include;
- keeping paths clear of vegetation
- installing stiles, gates and bridges
- inspecting the condition of the network
A number of parish and town councils have volunteer groups which undertake practical tasks using materials and equipment funded by their local Area Board. The volunteers find it a great opportunity to explore lesser known areas of their community, it is a fantastic social event and the help is invaluable in keeping our rights of way network open.
At the moment, we’re on the lookout for volunteers in the Ludgershall area, and anyone interested in being part of the group can contact their Community Area Engagement Manager, Marc Read – firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01722 434557
