Parish Footpaths Update

Several people have expressed concern to both myself and other members of the council and to Judy Harrison our parish clerk about the apparent disappearance of some of the more popular footpaths in the open countryside adjacent to the villages. This is not the first stage of a sinister plot being masterminded to restrict our enjoyment of the open countryside, but reflects a change in the farming practices and cropping of Normanby Estates who continue to be a good friend and neighbour to the villages. Due to the concerns expressed myself and other councillors have now held a meeting with the new estate manager along with the Footpaths Officer from North Lincolnshire Council.The paths that appeared to have succumbed to the plough are in the process of being re-seeded and within a short space of time will be back in prime walking condition. N.L.C. have agreed with your parish council to some minor re-routing taking place to improve the efficiency of the farming process but rest assured that we have walked all the proposed changes, and can assure you there will be no loss of amenity whatsoever.The Estate provides a well maintained and attractive backdrop for all three villages but we must remember its prime function is agricultural. The signs will be changed as soon as the new routes are back in walking condition and additional bins for litter and dog waste will be installed where necessary. Please get in the habit of using them as we need to pick up two or three extra marks next year if we elect to enter the competition for 2014.
Once again thanks for this year’s team effort.
David Faulks.                Chairman Parish Council
