The last year has been challenging to say the least, but from the hard times, a love of walking and exploring has emerged. Many of us have discovered parts of our beautiful surroundings we didn’t even know existed. A time to pause and take in the flowers, birds, animals and lovely views.
An idea suggested by one of our Parish Councillors has gained momentum into the launch of a project called the Weston Walkabout so that the love of our countryside, exercise and well-being can be enjoyed even more.
The Parish Council proposes to fund a number of benches (compliant and environmentally sound made from recycled plastic) and install them at various places we have identified along the walks around our Parish. These are favourite spots for many walkers, young and old, but we would love to have your input to your favourite places too so we’d love to hear from you.
We have the support from our local landowners, who have generously agreed to the project in principle and to a number of specific sites.
There is an opportunity for you to sponsor a bench either as an individual or group at a subsidised cost of £300 per bench. This will include a commemorative plaque with your message. The limit will be 125 characters. If there are competing bids for a particular site, allocation it will be on a first come/first served basis.
Please contact us by Friday 30th April with your suggestions of locations or to register your interest in sponsoring one of our new benches
We look forward to hearing from you!
