Broadney Kissing Gate

People who own footpaths have a legal obligation to allow access.  This can be via stiles or gates.  Kissing gates make access a lot easier, especially for less agile people and dogs.  If landowners are willing to replace stiles with kissing gates the County Council will provide the materials and the Parish Council footpaths committee led by Jane Rowland will organise a team of volunteers to do the work.  There is no charge to the landowner but he or she becomes responsible for maintenance. 

In January the team installed their 8th kissing gate on the Broadney.  The team photo shows (left to right) Andy Jolliffe, Ricky Bourne, Jane Rowland, Jim Rowland and Jeremy Barber.  The next one is the first customer; William the whippet.  Thanks go to the team, the county and the landowner, Middleton Estate.  If you'd like to volunteer to help improve our footpaths in the village please contact Jane Rowland or use the Contact Us button on this website.
