Campaign News

A new structure for management of The Ridgeway National Trail is at last beginning to emerge.  It has been decided that The Ridgeway and the Thames Path, currently run by a single committee of all the local authorities concerned, will in future be managed separately. A new Partnership is to be set up for The Ridgeway, to include a range of the local communities of interest, and with greater focus on engagement, improvement and promotion.  We welcome this development and look forward to playing our part in this new body.  For more news, have a look at our News & Events Page.
