Centenary Walk

Walk sign installation continues

A crisp and clear Sunday morning saw two of us out and about on the Centenary Walk circuit, adding additional signage and marking out those places where we there isn’t anywhere to put our arrows.  We need to install new wooden posts in these locations before we can complete the directional signage. However, it was lovely to meet a couple of groups of enthusiastic walkers with their WGC100 Souvenir Guides in their hands, following the map in the centre pages.  We were delighted to get their feedback on the ground, and to help them out with directions.  We have some 20 posts to put in place and we’ve still got to install metal arrows at all the road crossings.  The good news is that all the permissions have been received for the new bridge in the Commons which will link the permissive path on the Gascoyne Cecil estate to the Local Nature Reserve, so that should be going in shortly.  Our walk leaflet, which gives more detail of the walk and the points of interest along the way, is with the printers, and will be available at the City of Trees and Centenary Walk event in the Howard Centre on 14 March.
