In 2009, the committee decided that a large part of the Groups success in the past was its social focus and that this needed to be strengthened in going forward. Consequently, the concept of "Cluster Walks" was developed. Essentially the idea is to identify a Group or Cluster of connected properties participating in the project, and encourage the landholders to host a walk through the properties, explaining along the way the challenges the properties present and the work that has been done with the help of the Group.
Our hope is that they facilitate social interaction and a greater appreciation of shared land management issues at a local level between the contributing landholders and a wider appreciation of the catchment for all who attend.
We also want to have fun!
