Making Waves in Ripple

Working Party 22 June 2017

The club working party has been out and about again and the following was released to the press.

Evesham Rambling Club Working Party ventured a little further from home in June and headed to the banks of the River Severn near Ripple. Working with Worcestershire County Council Countryside Service, the team cleared away a great deal of undergrowth that hid four dilapidated stiles and replaced them with four brand new kissing gates.

Club spokesman Alan Saunders said “The Working Party normally carries out most of its work in the Evesham and Pershore area. On this occasion, we agreed to undertake some urgent work to improve access near Upton upon Severn. We managed to put a team of 10 members together and completed the work in just under a day.”

Over the past year, the Working Party has tackled a number of projects, from replacing footbridges and pedestrian gates to improving footpaths. Some of this work is in preparation for a Circular Walk round Evesham that the club is developing to mark its founding 70 years ago!
