Ben and me, inspecting a list of problems from Jon White our Area Officer and doing a bit of part time signing in the rain (geddid?); map below showing our route then pics of the worker.
Pics from Sundays work party when we installed, renewed, fixed up around 10 signposts plus some waymarking. Map reading courses available to needy people (if you write this then you will get a chance to say how history happened). Must be a lol somewhere. Thanks to all who came along, only about 3 SPs left in stock to do. Ben and I will check out other reported problems this week hopefully. Next meet 15th March
Ian passed me a folder of PONS stuff and it proved interesting, well a little, so I thought that I would put them in the blog as a little bit of our history.
Here is a list of PONS members from December 1992:
of the above, four are still active members and Audrey too.
This is the list from 1995: so in this list Ben has appeared so it makes 5 still active.
Here, now is a letter from Keith (Trumper) our first footpath officer and founder of the PONS group, to Ian Pennell dated 12 Jan 1996 suggesting it was time to find a new ‘leader’ but as he refers to the County’s new scheme (the Parish Paths Partnership P3) and the Parish Council, he means a new footpath officer.
Jon Pearsall, Tom Pearsall, John Corbett, Tim Nott (and sometimes his family members), Ian Pennell, Ben Cartwright, Simon Honeybourne, Alasdair Maxwell-Stewart, Tony Lewington, Mike Install, Rob and Ross Day, Carl Armstrong, Andy Palmer. We hope and believe that Keith would be proud, we know Audrey (Keith’s wife), now moved to the village centre, is.
Following on the apology from the Chief Exec. of MHDC, HERE is a letter from Kevin Oliver, Countryside Access Manager, on behalf of Mr Ian Bamforth, Head of Service at Worcestershire County Council.
