Trail Marker Upgrades

On Sunday the 23rd of May we set about to improve the stage 1 trail markers.

The trail markers are now more prominent (rather than blending into the landscape!) and we have begun the process of marking the trail in the reverse direction as well.

Helping on the day were Annie Pitt, Kirsty Gwynn Jones, Bianca Grigg (pictured) Michael Nugent and Tim Grigg.
