This evening, I organised a meeting for the Breckland and Waveney Valley Ranger Group. We met at The Angel at Larling, and spent a couple of hours discussion various issues, including volunteer recruitment, issues with existing routes, and possible new routes. It was good to meet two new rangers, and catch up with some older hands.
While out putting up volunteer recruitment signs, I also noticed a few places on Stan’s Walk (the Watton–Griston cycle path) where weeds have been pushing up the surface and in some cases breaking through.
Things aren’t too bad at the moment, but they’ll only get worse if left untreated.
Update (2015-06-12): I’ve now reported these to Sustrans and Norfolk County Council to see what can be done. The Council reference number is 514511.
The Breckland and Waveney Valley Sustrans Ranger Group is in need of some more volunteers, to help look after various parts of the National Cycle Network, around Thetford, Brandon, Watton and Dereham. For an up-to-date list of areas in need, and details of what help is needed, see the Volunteer Page. To help attract new volunteers, Sustrans has some special signs available to put up on NCN routes. I’ve acquired a few of these, and have just put some up along Green lane in Thetford, and the Watton–Griston cycle path.
While out putting up the signs, I also noticed a few problems with the surface of the Watton–Griston cycle path.
