It is good to see the riverside walk causeways have been renewed, the old ones were reaching the stage of being beyond repair. Our thanks to Horsham District Council for carrying out the work. It is a reminder that we are fortunate in having quite a number of footpaths in and around Storrington, all of which have to be kept in good order. They provide access to lovely areas free from traffic for our enjoyment. Using them ensures their survival and is good for us too. Walking is not the only way to appreciate fresh air and exercise. Joining our work parties is another, and provides good company, whatever the weather. Volunteers only need suitable clothing and footwear. More information below.
Our work party on Saturday 3rd February spent time in Fryern Dell, continuing clearance of invasive undergrowth and dead vegetation in the pond. The work party on 3rd March at 10.00am turns attention to The Glade for the annual path clearance and laying of chippings. It is rewarding to hear walkers say they appreciate the improvement.
The Thursday afternoon work parties on 18th January and 15th February cleared felled holly and rebuilt the barrier above the waterfall in the Upper Fryern Dell. Improving access and safety. For details of the work on 15th March please go to our website.
