Approved Minutes of the Wigmore Group Parish Council – December 2015 meeting
Anyone who has walked the footpath up to Wigmore Castle this year will remember how muddy and overgrown the track had become. Now, thanks to the help and hard work from many groups the path has been totally transformed. Just look at the before and after pictures.
The aggregate was supplied in three lorry loads from Breedon Aggregates (Leinthall Earls Quarry). About 40 tons was supplied and both the aggregate and the haulage were free of charge by way of a donation to the village. The timber revetments, pegs and membrane were supplied and delivered by Kington Building Supplies, and a mechanical track dumper was hired and delivered from Arrow Plant & Tool Hire in Leominster.
Finally but not least the path was laid by Herefordshire Ramblers who initially strimmed along the route before laying the materials. The Ramblers consisted of about five men on average and supervised by John Wride.
David Gardiner, our Footpaths Officer, oversaw the logistics of the work and he liaised with John in the ordering and delivery of all the materials including the hiring of the truck. English Heritage gave a grant of £1000 and Wigmore Group Parish Council gave £800. The Ramblers donated their time and muscle power to the project. Walkers have already commented favourably on the upgraded path.
The West Mercia Police Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) work with local people and partners to identify, tackle and solve issues that matter to the community where you live.
Making neighbourhoods safer by cutting day to day crime and anti-social behaviour is at the heart of keeping people in West Mercia safe. Thanks to an investment in mobile tablet style computers, these will enable officers to spend more time on patrol on the street and in neighbourhoods.
Officers will continue to come to people when they need them and provide a high quality service however you contact us – in person (on the street, at community bases and at partners and communities together [PACT] meetings), on the phone or online.
More information, contact details and tips to keep residents safe are in the newsletter.
