North Ayrshire has many miles of lovely paths, some of these are well used and some are lesser known. People often have their own favourite route. In this project people will have a chance to help keep some of these wonderful routes available to all. The project will create a network of supported volunteers who will carry out tasks such as path monitoring, basic path maintenance and vegetation management. Volunteers will be encouraged to “adopt” a path in their local area to monitor, reporting on their condition and joining in with group maintenance activities.
Volunteers will be fully trained in the use of small hand tools and in path maintenance techniques. In addition they will be supported to in work towards recognised qualification such as the John Muir awards if they wish to do so. The chosen paths may be in any part of the Garnock Connections project area. The project aims to ensure that the local path network is attractive for use by local residents and visitors to the area.
