A informal FoBM walk took place over the moor to inspect the sites of potential projects. The Sconce path was a quagmire and is seen as a priority for the Friends to tackle.
The path from the white house is a very popular route to the Aire Valley Scout camp. Improving the path will greatly aid access to the public and keep walkers off the busy main road, which is very dangerous.
Right: FoBM members inspecting the path erosion which leads to the old Sconce main street, and with bags of litter collected on the way over.
This highly successful meeting approved the constitution and discussed the priorities of the FoBM and the way forward. The agenda covered:
- Acceptance of the Constitution – passed.
- Officers reports – bank account created.
- Future Objectives of the F.O.B.M
- History of the Moors
- Improvement of Footpaths
- Control of Bracken
- Fund raising
The steering committee held their first meeting.
This meeting proved there was sufficient support and volunteers for the the steering committee were appointed.
The initial exploratory meeting (20 April 2009) was well supported and generated plenty of interest.
