The Auchterarder Path Group have been working in partnership with Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust to upgrade the Provost walk on the west of the town the first phase was opened at the end of June and work is now underway on the second phase.
However the group had noticed on the first phase vegetation(creeping buttercup and leaf litter) had started to become a bit of an issue and it was damaging the path and making it more difficult to use.
The group decided to run a task and managed to get a great turnout for a first task of 11 volunteers which included workers from Bear Scotland. Although the day was driech the groups spirits were not dampened(probably helped by the baking done by the group leaders) and they managed to get the path back to looking almost brand new again.
