Introducing Chris Stubbs, who has volunteered to be the Parish Path Warden for Long Wittenham.
The main purpose of the PPW is to walk the footpaths in the parish on a regular basis, equipped with a pair of secateurs to trim away any vegetation that is impeding the paths, particularly at stiles, gates and bridges. The PPW also reports to the Countryside Access Team (CAT) of Oxfordshire County Council any problems affecting the footpaths such as a dangerous tree overhanging a path, or a bridge that is considered to be unsafe to cross, so that the information can go onto the CAT’s database of such problems, hopefully to be resolved.
Chris can be contacted at email@example.com.
Please note that Chris Stubbs is no longer the Parish Path Warden for Long Wittenham.
