Meltham path clearingMeltham Walkers are Welcome carried out the first of their path clearing works for 2015 at Colders Lane, Meltham this week. The group identifies local paths in Meltham that require clipping, pruning or tidying then allocate a day to carry this out. Nine volunteers brought tools, gloves and bags and worked up the well used footpath clearing debris and litter as well as clipping back brambles and overhanging branches. Wendy Sykes, Meltham Walkers are Welcome Secretary said. We are a small group who organise monthly free guided walks around Meltham. On these walks we identify certain paths that are in need of clearing and create a working party to carry this out. This is the first one for 2015 and we will be working on others during the year.
