Supporting P&K Ramblers in Guildtown

IMG_1877

Community Greenspace recently supported a project taken forward by the P&K Ramblers to reinstate and improve the Loanfolds core path in Guildtown. The task was to install two sleeper bridges, way markers plus cut and prepare the path ready for opening.

The group were supported by the supply of materials and practical help from the local greenspace ranger and apprentice.

Perth and Kinross Ramblers have agreed to adopt the path and maintain it going forward while working with the local community. The path links the village of Guildtown with the River Tay and Stormont path to old scone.

If you wish to become involved in your local path group please contact communitygreenspace@pkc.gov.uk

Path groups training in Crieff

On Tuesday 3rd September volunteers from several path groups across PKC came to Crieff to take part in some PKC-led strimmer, leaf blower and pedestrian flail training. We had members from path groups in Crieff, Auchterarder and Abernethy taking part, despite a downpour throughout!

Much of the work the paths groups undertake requires the use of these tools, and proper operation of them is essential for the safety of both the user and those around them, as well as preventing damage to the equipment.

If you or your path group would be interested in being trained up on the safe use of strimmers, leaf blowers or flails we hope to hold another session soon. To register you interest please contact communitygreenspace@pkc.gov.uk
