Paths Group Progress

The Thornhill Paths Group have been holding monthly to work parties over the summer.
Those of you who walk the paths regularly may have noticed that the volunteers have improved the stiles and strimmed areas of the Muir Dam Path, cleared ditches on the North Common and attempted to stop the Hedges Path disappearing under the overgrown verges and soil dumped by the rabbits from their holes.

Much of the work on the North Common seems to have involved being in a ditch.

We also have regular meetings to discuss progress and next steps. If you would like to join us the next meeting is on 21 October. Contact paths@thornhillstirling for more information.

Paths Working Group July 3rd

The Thornhill Paths Group are meeting for their second regular working group on Saturday at 11am. We will focus on two areas: the Muir Dam path for strimming and possibly ditch digging; and on the Hedges Path strimming and cutting back of overgrowth.

Those willing to work on Muir Dam path meet at the CHURCH hall and others at the Community Hall, both at 11am.

Please bring strimmers or secateurs. If you don’t have either you could still help by clearing cut materials.

We will potentially be working with prickly material so thick gloves, long sleeves and trousers are advised, as are stout shoes. Don’t forget sun cream, insect repellent and fluids.

It’s going to be fun… honest!

NB there will not be a work group this Sunday.
