  • Hi, I thought you might like to know that I, with my three dogs, am walking the South West Coast Path, carrying a slightly enormous backpack! We started in Minehead on 22nd June and have just passed through Penzance. If anyone sees us please say hi! We are also raising money for charity - our just giving page is here more
  • Pleased to be supporting the South West Coast Path Association who today announced that we have been successful in our bid to the Coastal Communities Fund to secure £1 million investment in the South West Coast Path. This project will repair, improve and promote the South West Coast Path (SWCP). Funds will help with 32 urgent repair works to the path, in addition to a range of projects providing information boards and signage, events and marketing. This will create and safeguard around 788 jobs from construction, management and tourism generated by the path.
