Dear resident,
With all of us in lockdown many more of us are getting out into the local countryside using the many footpaths in and around Coleshill.
I have been asked to forward to you a copy of the countryside code as a gentle reminder as so many local farmers are reporting damage to land and crops.

Please observe the code and forward to others who may not be aware of its content.

"Walkers and farmers must work together to avoid damage to crops and wildlife habitats; so use a pair of wellies and stick to the footpaths, says rural body”

Crops are being damaged nationwide as a result of walkers not keeping to public footpaths, the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) has said.
With the nation still in lockdown, many people are finding solace in taking a walk in the countryside; but farmers across the country are reporting increasing damage to crops and wildlife habitats caused by walkers not following the Countryside Code.
