A dark and univiting footpath in North Camp has been greatly improved with the help of rangers and volunteers from The Logic Group in Fleet. The footpath lies on the west of the A331 opposite the Kebur Builders Yard, running north from Lynchford Road to South Street.
It turns out that even a yellow-warning of heavy rain wasn’t enough to dissuade Nikki and her 18 Logic Goup colleagues, and our experienced volunteer Tony Elston. We dug out spare waterproofs and set to work cutting back the path, and clearing the hazardous trees we had felled the day before with the chainsaw. Everyone did a fantastic job (bribed by hot tea under the gazebo), cutting back over 600m of footpath, litter picking and replacing 32 broken fence rails.
We are now working with our partners at Rushmoor Borough Council to resolve the other issues, such as path drainage. The Salesian College will cut back their overhanging sports field conifers in August. A huge thank you to everyone involved in making this popular route so much more inviting, and producing such a dramatic transformation.
