IMG_4483rs 24th June 2017 KW

Blairgowrie and Rattray Access Network maintain the core path network surrounding Blairgowrie. The group have over 30 fantastic volunteers who help with various tasks from cutting back, strimming, litter picking and a whole range of other tasks which BRAN lend their hand to.

One committed volunteer is Ally Donald. Even though Ally works full time and volunteers with a number of groups, he still finds the time to cut grass on several evenings a week, keeping the path network accessible. One such path is the 8 mile River Ericht path which is a mix between field edges and riverside paths. Ally is often seen on his trusty mower cutting the path and chatting to passers-by. He is full of enthusiasm and his nickname in the group is ‘Q’ for Quartermaster.

Ally also helps fundraise for tools and equipment. Recently co-ordinating the groups charity shop in May and organising a Fun Run along the river Ericht path.
