Work continues on the refurbishment of the  QECP Orange  mountain bike trail. Earlier posts have highlighted the work of the volunteer group and their monthly weekend sessions, with the next one taking place on the 21st/22nd April.

The trail will be getting colour coded as part of a National Forestry Commission scheme which grades the  trails according to the challenges that they present to users. The idea being to match the individual’s ability to the trail that they chose to use where ever they are.

The new waymarked posts will be made of recycled plastic and the signs themselves will be made in the County Council’s own Sign Workshop based at Kingsworthy. Production is already underway and the deadline for the end of the project is the 20th May when there will be an official launch. 

The Sign Shop can design, produce and install signage of all types for private customers and businesses alike. For more information contact Kim Baker on
