Our Footpath Volunteers play a vital role in helping local landowners and the Lancashire County Council maintain the footpaths we all love to walk. The 49 parishes in the Ribble Valley are normally divided up between 10 Footpath Officers (volunteer members of our group) who keep an eye on the condition of footpaths, stiles and signs.
When a footpath problem is found it can be reported directly to
We are members of the LCC Local Delivery Scheme and should receive an annual grant towards tools and expenses. We are limited to vegetation clearance and removing overhead branches causing obstructions. If you want to help with this work contact Peter Raywood, committee member.
Ribble Valley footpaths are generally in good order. This is in some part due to our work. Please see GROUP NEWS for some success stories.
