The newly formed Ellesmere Parish Path Partnership (P3) volunteer group attended a training session led by Helen Beresford, Shropshire Council volunteering officer.

The P3 scheme enables rights of way signs, stiles, kissing gates and paths to be properly maintained and safe for local walkers and visitors to the town to walk and enjoy the Ellesmere countryside.

David Ball, Ellesmere P3 volunteer group coordinator said: "At the moment the Ellesmere P3 group are up to strength but other areas can set up groups.

"The person to contact is Helen Beresford, Shropshire Council, active volunteering officer."
