Footpath 24 that crosses Rye Meadows has been widened and cleared by Chris Edge Tree Care. The blackthorn was beginning to encroach on the footpath, and the land owner, Mrs Burnett, has paid to have this cut back. Rye Meadows Volunteers will soon be resurfacing the path with hardcore paid for by a grant obtained from MVDC, similar to FP596. The latter should be completed next week. It is hoped residents will appreciate the effort put in by the volunteers, not to mention the generosity of the land owner.
