Walters Lane – Update

We have been told by Shropshire Council  that the work on Walters Lane is now booked for May this year. A quote was supplied to the council by a local contractor which they have approved. Start on the project has been put back to May to allow the ground conditions to dry out.

Thanks to Jo for her persistence.

Outdoor Partnerships annual user survey 2017-18

Please find below a link to the Shropshire User Survey for 2017-2018.

We really do need to get responses up from Equestrians.

Each member of a family can fill in a separate Survey as an Equestrian. They can also do a separate one, if they wish, for other disciplines like walking, as this would have different responses.

Equestrian responses were outnumbered last year by responses from cyclists.

In 2016 there were only 48 responses from Equestrians to the User Survey, and in 2017 this increased to 133.

At the end of October 2017 the BHS alone had 1,357 BHS members in Shropshire, with regionally 7,456 BHS members, with no doubt many equestrians on our borders who ride into Shropshire.

I know we all get fed up filling in these sorts of survey and not seeing any outcome but for 5 minutes effort we need to be doing this and get the numbers of responses up. This is an annual survey so please do fill it in, and pass the link on.

Good News – Walters Lane

Had a call from council byways to say they will start work on improving Walters Lane in next couple of weeks. Hopefully the stone will be delivered next week and then they will bring their digger over and complete the work.

Not sure if any of our members did contact the council following my recent email but if so thank you.

website update

A recent automatic security and compatibility update to the underlying website software for the Clee View Bridleway Group meant that the old website stopped working. I am in the process of updating the website to use this latest software. This will be much better for mobile devices and should provide a better system for the future but it will take some time for me to make all the changes.  Hopefully the key information will still be available and usable but please let me know if you are having problems.

Thanks Chris
