Volunteering for the South Chilterns Path Maintenance Team

Fancy some fresh air and exercise whilst, at the same time, improving local Public Rights of Way?

The South Chilterns Path Maintenance Volunteers (SCPMV), part of the Chiltern Society’s Rights of Way Group, was established in 2004 to help improve access to the rights of way in South Oxfordshire.

Working closely with the three Chiltern Society Oxfordshire Area Secretaries and their thirty-seven parish path representatives, Oxfordshire County Council (OCC), Trust for Oxfordshire’s Environment (TOE), landowners and H&G Ramblers, the SCPMV organises four workdays per month to carry out clearance, waymarking and gate installation projects.

We meet at 9.00 am on the second and fourth Wednesday’s and Saturday’s each month, working across the Oxfordshire Chilterns from Goring to Ewelme and from Henley to Chinnor. We use hand and power tools, work until 1.00 and then most attend the nearest village pub for a convivial; beer and pub lunch.

If you are a walker or cyclist, and enjoy the thousands of trails in this beautiful part of the World, it’s a constructive way to give something back to the community, but it is also a great way to get a knowledge and appreciation of the area.

We have volunteers who join us once or twice a year as well as many regulars, so for more information, or to give it a go, please contact:
