FOOTPATHS
Volunteers carried out the restoration of the Church Street and Friar Waddon footpath in autumn 2011. For update see COMMUNITY ISSUES

President Angela Lousley and labourers officially open the restored footpath!

GATES AND STILES
We obtained a grant to cover the cost of renewing the bridle gate at the community picnic spot at Gould’s Bottom, the kissing gate at Hurdlemead (bottom of Elwell Street) and the stile adjacent to Spring Cottage at the back of the Old School Hall.
Funding for the footpaths, gates and stiles came from Dorset County Council.

FUND RAISING
In conjunction with the Annual Well Dressing’s coastal theme at the beginning of May and an Upwey Society talk, we successfully raised a significant amount for the local Portland Bill Coastwatch Station.

VILLAGE INFORMATION BOARD

Funding for the board came from the South Dorset Ridgeway Heritage Project.
