Delight at new path

THE South Downs Society is delighted with the Cowdray Estate’s offer of a new path linking the Rother Walk to the path from June Lane (‘Compromise offered over footpath row’, September 29).

This will be a superb addition to the path network in Midhurst and is to be much welcomed.

We continue to call on the county council and academy to create an additional path outside the academy’s new sports field so that people wishing to walk directly between June Lane and Lamberts Lane will be able to do so once again.

Such a link would also be valuable to the nursery class in Lamberts Lane whose nature rambles have come to a halt since the closure of the path.

The more options people have to enjoy and get around Midhurst on foot, the better!
