Long stretches of the Rifle Range Path – on West End Common – now completed

Rifle Range Path

Last year Elmbridge Borough Council asked if the Moles could help reconstruct the Rifle Range Path on West End Common, which the Project originally worked on back in the late 1980s!

The Trust received a grant from Elmbridge’s Medium Grant scheme to cover the cost of working on about 100 metres of the path which was completed last summer.  This August the Project completed another 90 metres.  This year the funding came from Elmbridge’s Community Infrastructure Levy fund and went straight to the Project.

Also this summer another successful application was made to the CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) fund for the next 100 metres to be completed in summer 2016, so the Moles will be back there again!

The regular Moles volunteers were joined on the Rifle Range project by a group from SCC’s Strategic Partnerships team (shown in the photo).

Thank you to them for joining in so enthusiastically.
