Spring is in the air

We've had some great events over the past couple of weeks.

On the 11th, as well as having a meeting to finalise our Annual Plan we went up to Beeley Woods to see what Polly and  Tony have been doing up there. This really is a lovely path through the woods to Oughtibridge  - P. and T. have been making sure it stays that way.

They are working on information boards as well - apparently over 60 species live in these woods. It's a pity getting to the woods from Hillsborough isn't quite as safe and pleasant as it could be and there are problems in Oughtibridge as well, with several collisions at the junction with Station Lane. In fact there was a protest about this on the Monday after we visited:-

It's a pity someone had parked some cars on the pavement!

The redevelopment of the paper mill will hopefully provide us with safer links between Beeley and Wharncliffe Woods, hence between NCN627 and the TPT "proper" - NCN67. 

This last Sunday Lenny and I completed Access Barrier measuring between Richmond and Rother Valley, as well as the 2 Bridges Greenway between Killamarsh and Halfway. This completes the Access Barrier measuring in Sheffield - just got to put the results up on the Google Map, I'm halfway through that. We also discovered the Bridle Stile, a great route between Mosbrough and High Lane, not too far from Gleadless.  

Upcoming in the diary we have the following:- 

8th April Route Check -
10th April  - Stall at Sheffield Station.
25th April  - Evening Working Session (first of BST)
