On Saturday 19th November 6 members of the Cirencester Path Maintenance Volunteers travelled to the Chepstow area to take part in an ambitious week-long path maintenance project, instigated by the Ramblers, to fix problems along the popular 177 mile long National Trail - Offa’s Dyke.
They were met by John Baker, footpath secretary for the Forest of Dean Ramblers, and armed with saws, loppers, and other tools they set off to clear overgrown parts of the path. They also removed 3 fallen trees that had been reported. A photographer organised by Head Office, took over 60 photographs, some of which will appear on the main Ramblers website.
Thankfully the rain held off and they returned home satisfied with a job well done.
