Plans to map town’s footpaths

A GROUP of green-minded Clevedon residents is hoping to encourage more people to walk or cycle short journeys with the creation of a definitive map of the town’s footpaths.

Members of Transition Clevedon are looking for someone to help them map out the many paths that link in and around Clevedon with the aim of persuading people out of their cars to reduce their carbon footprint.

The group also has plans to install new signs to make the footpaths easier to follow.

Transition Clevedon member Ruth Gofton said: “Recently I discovered a whole network of interconnected paths around Clevedon which I never knew about.

“I’ve lived here for a number of years and hadn’t realised they were there.

“With so many paths it can seem like a rabbit warren so we are hoping to attract funding to put up signs and also produce a simple map that people can download from our website or pick up.

“At this time of year people have lots of good intentions to get fitter and being able to cycle or walk safely around town makes that goal easier to achieve so that leaving the car at home for short journeys becomes a habit.”
