One of the volunteers we support has been nominated as Paths for All Path Group Volunteer of the Year.
David is a member of the Crieff Community Trust Path Group and also regular out with our Crieff Green Routes Group
“I just love being outdoors with nature – and seeing how I’m helping to breathe life back into the land and paths in the local area just spurs me on. Five years ago, I retired from the Forestry Commission and moved to Crieff. I’m really chuffed to be nominated for the award and as a ‘newbie’ up here, I really feel as though I have been accepted. When I moved to Crieff the newly formed path group were looking for volunteers and I hoped that with my forestry background spanning some years, I might be of some use.”
Dave is so valuable in the volunteering he does in the Crieff area and we are thrilled that Dave has been nominated for this award. Good luck!
PKC would like to extend our congratulations to Ally Donald from Blairgowrie And Rattray Access Network (BRAN) for winning Paths For All’s Community Path Volunteer of the Year 2017.
We are delighted for Ally, who is one of the busiest volunteers in Perth & Kinross (if not Scotland) and makes regular appearances on this BLOG. Ally’s willingness to get ‘stuck-in’ whatever the weather has ensured that the path network in and around Blairgowrie and Rattray remain open and usable all year round.

Paths for All have launched a new online map that plots the details of the free walks taking place in every local authority in Scotland each week. Health Walks are low–level, safe, and social, they are aimed at people looking to get more active and are a great way of seeing our beautiful county and brilliant greenspaces!
