14th January saw the delivery of a poster, 6 fliers and a letter of introduction to 11 of the 12 primary schools in the valley, missing only Broadheath which will be visited later. The other schools are Suckley, Lindridge, Hallow, Grimley and Holt, Astley, Broadheath, Broadwas, Whitbourne, Great Witley, Abberley and Martley. Pupils aged 9-13 are invited to come along to the 4 week, 5 session courses to study fossils, volcanoes and minerals under the tutelage of Bob Allison at Chantry School.
Also, marked up maps with a total of 14 walks (including 4 geology walks and 10 plain old walks) were delivered to County Hall for Belinda Thorne, mapping officer, to mark up on two separate maps, one for geology, one for, you’ve guessed it, plain old walks. Belinda will deliver the finished product as a print, as a pdf or whatever and if we have the money it would be very good to print them on to a fiberglass or aluminium substrate similar to our interpretation boards. We plan to position these inside the old weighbridge building, in downtown Martley. This work is offered to Martley by the County Council at no charge, in recognition of our good relationship with County Rights of Way due to the work of the Path-or-Nones over these last 28 years.
