For Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools
The Parish Council is seeking volunteers to take on the inspection of footpaths in the Parish. This would suit anyone who is a regular dog walker, or someone who just likes walking in the fresh air. All that is required of you is to make a note of any footpaths (Public Rights of Way) that are difficult to use through overgrown vegetation, brambles and nettles or blocked by obstacles; footbridges that are in need of repair and anything else that might prevent or endanger anyone using the path.
These incidents can be reported on-line directly to Essex Highways who are responsible for ensuring footpaths and bridle ways are passable and the report number advised to the Clerk.
If you would like to get involved or would like further information, please contact the Parish Clerk, Christine, by email to email@example.com or call 01376 329288 (Weds or Thurs 9.00am til 3.00pm) or 07933 306927.
