Volunteer Path Wardens
We also have a number of members who have been trained by Surrey C.C. as Individual Volunteer Footpath Wardens. This enables them to undertake minor vegetation clearance and to install waymark discs, where missing. If you are interested in being advised when the next course is held, please contact Tony Pearson.
In 2011 the Surrey Area of The Ramblers agreed to take on the semi-annual inspection of rights of way that had previously been undertaken by County Council staff. Originally a local authority BVPI (Best Value Performance Indicator), each half year a computer selected random selection of 2.5% of the rights of way in the county is walked and the state of the paths, stiles, gates, fingerposts, waymarks etc is assessed. The results can then be compared over time and with other local authorities.
