P1040807CCT is very involved in the development and improvement of the footpath and cycle track network around Crieff.  While some of this work involves significant fund raising and engineering works, there’s also a lot that can be done with a wheelbarrow and spade — and the help of volunteers.

There is a very active group involved in carrying out repairs on existing paths in Crieff and neighbouring areas.  This group — which includes people from Crieff, Comrie and Muthill and is supported by the Perth & Kinross Council Community Greenspace Team — meets regularly to clear overgrown vegetation, improve drainage and repair the surface of local paths.

Come along and join a work party!  This is a terrific way to get involved in a very practical way in helping the work of CCT.  It’s also great exercise, very satisfying and a lot of fun!
