KERSWELL DOWN STORM DAMAGE

After the recent very bad weather KKPC will be conducting work within Kingskerswell Down woodland to ensure as many of the paths remain open.  This work will be signed, however, due to a number of fallen trees and broken branches in and around pathways, the Parish Council would ask that visitors take great care when walking through the wooded areas, and they do so at their own risk.

ALL EVENTS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
