Cutting the ribbon and officially opening the River Coln Trail

Launch of new River Coln Trail

The official opening of the new 33 mile trail was successfully launched in Fairford on Saturday 23rd March and attended by over 70 people. Presentations were made by the Chair of Fairford Walkers are Welcome Malcolm Cutler, and Sheila Talbot Chair of Winchcombe Walkers are Welcome. Kate Ashbrook, Patron of Walkers are Welcome and Secretary of The Opens Spaces Society delivered a speech prior to Kate officially opening the trail at the Oxpens beside the river.

We welcomed Margaret Bishop and Roger Philpott who both independently came up with the idea of a Coln Trail many years ago and it was nice to have them at the launch.
