The Kenilworth Footpath Preservation Group is a friendly and informal voluntary group (with no membership subscription) which always welcome additional helpers.
Our main aim is to clear and waymark a hundred plus rights of way – footpaths and bridleways in Kenilworth and the surrounding parishes, to make sure that all the paths in our latest booklet ‘Kenilworth and Beyond’ are always open*, accessible and clearly marked. This involves building stiles, gates and bridges, path clearance and waymarking with blue and yellow arrows. In addition we hold two social events each year around during August and December. plus the occasional business meeting.
We meet for our working parties on the third Sunday morning of each month at 9.45 a.m. in the Square West car park (behind the Kenilworth library), finishing around 1 p.m. in a local pub (not compulsory). The tasks are suitable for all levels of ability and fitness so all can contribute.
The group liaises with and makes representation to Warwickshire CC re access to the countryside.
If you want to feel better about life, get fit, or just try a couple of hours of environmental conservation work then the KFPG Green Gym is the place for you. Meeting on the third Sunday morning of each month at 9.45 a.m. in the Square West Car Park, Barrowfield Lane, Kenilworth (behind the Kenilworth library), finishing around 1 p.m. in a local pub (not compulsory!).
