The Zone have worked hard over the winter months to complete their path project along the Jubilee path in Dalmellington. The participants who were split into three teams were asked to write a final blog for the project and here is what they had to say:
‘Everyone on JJ&co completed what we set out to do. JJ&co think we definitely improved the area because we got some good comments from the community on Social Media. JJ& co enjoyed the most that we got to help the community.’
Jack Dickson (JJ&co sub team)
‘Very enjoyable doing the work. Found out we had skills that we did not know we had. We helped out people that use all the paths daily. Happy with the all the comments. I like to thank Paths for All for all that they done, a great job! ‘
Gilbert Arthur (The A team sub team)
‘We set out to improve a local path to help the community. ‘Paths for All; came in and taught us how to do it. With their help, we widened the path and cut back the trees. We got lots of positive feedback from the locals including the following social media comments:’
‘They dae a great wee job, dae the community proud they boys. Well done’
‘Well done, noticed the old line had been tidied up. Big difference’
