Parish Paths Seminar

Norfolk Local Access Forum would like to invite those interested to a parish paths seminar. The purpose of the event is to explore practical ways in which they, parish and town councils and local volunteers can work together for the benefit of public paths (primarily Public Rights of Way and promoted routes). The event takes place on Wednesday 29th May 2019 from 2pm to 4pm at North Walsham High School (The Atrium), Spenser Avenue, North Walsham, NR28 9HZ. Although the event is first and foremost for parishes in the north/north east Norfolk area they'd be happy for parishes from outside the area to attend if they wish (although there will be two further events in due course to the West and South of Norfolk).
