Provost Walk Maintenance

The Auchterarder Sports and Recreation Path Group have been going from strength to strength with almost a full year worth of tasks now under their belt.

The group were out on the Provost walk again this time starting from the primrose park end and managing the vegetation going along phase two of the walk. We noticed that there was some Himalayan balsam coming from the stream but unfortunately all the seeds had already popped on this. This will be something the group will tackle next year as it is only a small amount and easily manageable.

The group split in to two smaller groups with one group focusing on strimming the edges and the other group cutting back any woody plants or branches along the length.

A special thank you to Bear Scotland who have been very supportive of the group and were able to provide some willing volunteers!

The next focus for the group will be to get out on the paths and figure out what is needing to be done over the next 6 months looking at the wider network above and beyond the improved footpaths.

If you are interested in joining the group on one of the tasks please contact Alan Dorman- adorman@pkc.gov.uk
