Today Neil, Ian and I were lucky enough to walk around the allotment with a renowned trail builder.
We had our eyes opened to just how big an asset our little area of woodland is, what great potential it holds and how lucky we are to have it.
We were mesmerised by how much there is to learn about building truly sustainable trails, and how simple changes can make the difference between a great trail and one doomed to erode.
We came away from our walk with a new found enthusiasm but twice as many questions as we'd had answered.
Our plan now is simple; identify what everybody wants from our little allotment then work hard to make it happen.
What's great is that this particular trail builder wants to be a part of what we're doing, something we could only dream of not so long ago.
Today was a very good day.
