A COMMUNITY group behind a path project that will link two major Ross-shire settlements is clearing the way to get volunteers involved in maintenace work again.
The Peffery Way will connect Dingwall and Strathpeffer by an all-ability walking and cycling route which it's hoped will also increase active travel opportunities for commuters getting to and from work as well as recreational users.
Completed sections of the route, which is being created in stages as and when funding permits, have been well used in recent months and being hailed a lockdown lifeline by some.
The Peffery Way Association has managed to make some progress during lockdown and is now looking to get volunteers involved again with the further easing of coronavirus crisis restrictions.
The group said: "It's been fabulous to see and hear the local enthusiasm for the Peffery Way.
"We all appreciate the time the Trustees put into moving the project on.
"Being part of a local community collective is great for our physical and mental health. So, for those of you who are keen to contribute, we are organising a physically distanced maintenance morning on Saturday, May 15 at 9.30am for two hours. Please email Heather at email@example.com to find out what needs to be done and to help work out a plan for the morning. Two hours of your time will be a great help to the project. We look forward to hearing and seeing you."
