Cllr Dr Carol Stow continued: “This year the charity I will be supporting is CROWS - Community Rights of Way Service. This is a group of people, all volunteers, who repair and improve paths in our local area. So many people, both locals and visitors, gain immense social and health benefits from walking but we often forget that paths need maintenance and clear signing.
