Vacancy for East Farndon Footpath Warden

After many years, our Footpath Warden, Alan Langley, is intending to hang up his walking boots. The Parish Council wants to thank Alan for his excellent work over the years.

So, we are now looking for a new Footpath Warden. This is a volunteer role undertaken within the Parish, which involves monitoring the footpaths / Public Right of Ways (PRoWs) within the Parish Boundary, to help the Parish Council and residents to be aware of the current status and condition of those footpaths / ProWs. The Footpath Warden’s activities include:

· Being aware of rules and regulations associated with PRoWs. 

· Carrying out at least one survey a year of all the PRoW within the parish. 

· Checking that pathways are clear and accessible, and that route signs are clearly visible and stiles, gates and bridges are in good order.

· Reporting any issues with PRoWs on WNC’s Street Doctor.

· Reporting to the Parish Council on PRoW issues in the parish. 

If you are interested in this role, or would like any further information, please contact Caroline Burton (

Alan Langley has kindly offered to undertake a handover walk in the good weather with the new Footpath Warden – along paths he has walked on many occasions!
