Dartmoor Way Virtual Launch

Subject: Fw: Dartmoor Way plans for Virtual Launch - message to Devon Ramblers Groups

Dear Devon area Ramblers and walking groups,

I am sending this email to update you on the status of the Dartmoor Way. I hope you will share this information with your walking group.

As you know, as a result of lock down, we had to cancel the planned opening event and walks festival in May 2020. Much of our work preparing walking maps, route descriptions and updates to web pages was also put on hold. However, as restrictions were relaxed we were able to complete the development of our our plans to maintain the route. We have provided maintenance packs to the 8 walking groups who are each looking after a section of the route. In recent weeks these groups have been sending out teams to check on the condition of the route and in general things are looking good
