The Green Routes to Wellbeing group in Crieff have been doing a range of activities going from planting bulbs to reinstalling a core path sign. The first session of this year for the first part planting daffodil bulbs at the side of the lade then because we managed to race through all the bulbs we restored a tree cage.
The next week we found a sign that was looking a bit worse for wear as it was completely broken at the bottom so the group got to work using spades and a pinch bar to create a new hole for the sign then put the sign along with a mix of smaller stones, big stones and soil and packed it in with the pinch bar to make sure it was as solid as possible. With the job that they done I think its safe to say that sign isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. After this there was still some time left so we cleared a few ditches to make sure the water was not restricted by leaves whilst going through drains.
Recently a family of beavers have moved into a area at the Lady Marys walk so the task was to walk this path and to keep an eye out for any beaver damage. The day for this was perfect as the sun was in the sky and there wasn’t a cloud in sight combined with the great scenery you experience when you walk Lady Marys.
