Sussex Border Path
Here is some excellent news regarding some stile replacement on a part of the Sussex Border Path in East Sussex between Northiam and Beckley.
Retiring Footpath Officer Receives Award
At a recent meeting of Area Council Graham Elvey was presented with his Ramblers award for his “outstanding contribution to walking”.
In addition to effectively managing, for seven years, the role of West Sussex Area Footpath Officer with a team of 60 plus Local Footpath Secretaries, he took on the task of re-launching the 150 mile long Sussex Border Path (SBP).
This was successfully achieved in September 2016 at a special re-launch event attended by the originators of the path, Ben Perkins and Aeneas Mackintosh, together with Kate Ashbrook.
A big thank you to Graham from both Sussex Ramblers and all walkers in the two counties.
