Check out the National Forest Walking Festival 18-30 May 2013
The Ramblers is dedicated to protecting footpaths and other places to which the public has a right of way or access on foot, defending the beauty of the countryside and promoting walking for all. It has more than 140,000 members in 54 Areas and over 450 local groups.
Derby & South Derbyshire are one of the groups within the Derbyshire Area.
The tragic news about Ash dieback reaching Britain need not stop people from enjoying a woodland walk this autumn.
“Walkers, who often know their local woodland well, can play an important role in identifying trees which they suspect might be infected and reporting them to the Forestry Commission.”
Suspected cases of the disease can be reported directly to the Forestry Commission at http://www.forestry.gov.uk/chalara
The advice which the Ramblers gives to walkers is:
• Always follow the information and advice on any official signs at sites affected by Ash dieback to avoid accidentally spreading the disease.
