DEDICATED to monitoring and maintaining usage of parish footpaths, Calstock Footpath Society's honorary secretary Linda Fowler has decided to hand over the reins.

Linda has been a significant player in the volunteer team. She has taken the society into the '21st century', enabling the group to increase the level of communication among the community and a wider audience, including local and county councils.

At the 30th annual general meeting on Saturday, January 17, a bouquet was jointly presented to Linda by three past chairmen of the society on behalf of its 60 members.

Calstock Footpath Society is one of only two groups in Cornwall that have similar aims and objectives, which includes social walking.
