Spreading the word.Walkers are Welcome was represented at the East Devon Rural and Business Fair recently by Ann Scotter from Wilveliscombe and John Dyson from Sidmouth. The day went very well according to Ann with them promoting “Walkers are Welcome” and using Wiveliscombe as an example of the advantages gained by becoming a member. John was talking about Sidmouth and the fact that the “Get Together” this year is in the West Country for the first time and how it would help tourism in the area if more towns became WAW status. It was a good opportunity to approach bodies including the National Farmers Union about working with farmers re maintaining footpaths. Also bodies such as The Conservation Trust and Devon Council found out more about WAW and the benefits being a member can bring.
