6. Proposed Path Closure: Most of you will be aware that the new owner of the land near the Attenborough Sailing Club is wishing to close the footpath from Attenborough to Long Eaton. Notts Walker Ramblers are putting in a Right of Way claim to save the route alongside the railway line. Further details at . If you wish to complete and send in a user evidence form and claim map, please find these circulated as attachments to the email. This is a route well used by the Club, particularly during the summer months, and it would be a real shame to lose it.
