CCT will use the funding to support the work of CCT’s volunteer paths group, who meet monthly to carry out repair work on local footpaths and cycle routes. The grant will purchase fuel, strimmer cord and work gloves for volunteers.
In addition, the funding will be used to create a new welcome sign and install a bollard at the entrance to Lady Mary’s Walk and Acorn Dell, at Turretbank Road.
CCT are delighted to have received this grant from Paths for All which will allow us to continue with the improvements we have begun on the first section of Lady Mary’s Walk in Acorn Dell. A new sign will be placed near the entrance to the path, welcoming local people and visitors to this beautiful walk. It will also let everyone know that the land on the west side of the Turret Burn is community-owned.
We are also pleased to be able to help support our local volunteer paths group. This group of committed individuals, co-ordinated by Alex McLeod, meet once a month to do repairs on paths in and around Crieff, Comrie and Muthill.
