Flaxton Footpath Restoration – Volunteers Wanted

You will have noticed that work has been ongoing to clear the overgrowth from the edges of the pavements through Flaxton. This was a key project identified by the Village Plan.

The work to date has been carried out by a team from The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) who are based in York.

The team will return at around 10:00 am on Wednesday 3rd May 2023 with the aim of clearing the remainder of the path from the Kell up to Oak Busk Lane. This is a particularly overgrown section of pavement so we anticipate that there will be a significant amount of turf and spoil removed.

The aim is to use the turf and spoil to repair sections of the common that have been damaged by passing and parked vehicles.

The Flaxton Environment Group is seeking volunteers to help with the commons repair work, ideally on Wednesday.

If you can give some of your time to help please contact Steve Axford on 01904-468251 or via his email .

Alternatively, please just ‘turn up’ on the day.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

As a footnote we are also looking at options for improving the section of footpath from Oak Busk Lane to the Level Crossing.
