Newsletter November 2023
Welcome to our newsletter!
We would like to bring you up to date with our work, building and maintaining paths around Torphins.
Torphins Paths Group is a charitable organisation manned by volunteers. Our objective is simply to improve walking opportunities in and around the village, as well as developing off road routes linking to surrounding communities.
We have made good progress in the last 6 months on both short walks around the village and and longer routes connecting surrounding communities.
I hope you find this of interest and can share our excitement at some of these projects. We would be delighted to get your feedback which you can send to us by clicking here.
Also, if you want to join our group, or even get involved in some of our volunteer activities, you can sign up, by clicking here.
