Charlbury as a Cotswold Gateway
Walkers are Welcome have been successful in getting two grants for Charlbury to be recognised as a Costwolds Gateway Town.
The first came through the Cotswolds Conservation Board as a government grant to help the rural economy. This amounts to about £3000 plus the services of the Cotswolds Voluntary Wardens to carry out the work.
The second came fro Great Western Railway as a Community grant of £5000 to improve and publicise walking and cycling.
There will be quite a bit of work involved including up grading of the Mill Field Circular path and the permissive path from Banbury Hill through Wigwell both of which will mean you don't have to walk on busy roads.
the aim is to provide a series of short circular walks - of 4 miles or less that are made readily accessible.
In addition there will be a series of new and replacement notices in Mill Field, in the Town and at the station.
Also improved signage for cyclists will be provided and new entrance Town Signs
This will be something that we want people to get involved with in all aspects of the work. To find out more come along to the Corner House on Saturday 1st December where there will be a display of the walks and signs and people to talk to. We hope to get lots of volunteers and ideas
Look forward to seeing you there
