Location of your path?
Earlston Path Network, Scottish Borders.

What inspired your group to develop this project idea?
We wanted to make the maintenance of our local paths more efficient so decided to upgrade our equipment.  This benefited the volunteers involved in the work and path users.

Who uses your path?
A wide scope of people use the path locally as well as visitors so keeping on top of the path maintenance is extremely important.

What is unique about this project?
When we purchased our new machinery using the grant we recycled the old by giving it to another local group.  The funding benefited both us directly and another group indirectly.
