GOOD DEEDS: Chalfont St Peter resident clears out path to guarantee pleasant walks 

 Published on: 10th March 2021   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Chalfont St Peter resident spent three weekends clearing up a path in the village for people to enjoy.

Henry John Allum, cleared the terrible build up of mud and debris from the pavement along Rickmansworth Lane, he also cut back the hedge next to the path.

Speaking to ChalfontsNews he said: “We walk our dog and you can’t walk there without getting really muddy. Where there should be a footpath there’s mud all over the path and the hedges are overgrown so I thought I’d do it.

“I spent a couple of hours on Saturday and Sunday mornings over three weekends. I got a really positive response from local people and I was pleased to know that others were also enjoying the benefits.”

Henry admitted there are some footpaths in Chalfont St Peter which are completely blocked. 

He added: “I thought I’m gonna cut the grass and do some work at my own house so I’ll just go and do the same round the corner.

“We just lose the footpaths if we don’t keep them clear.I think everybody could just do a little bit.

“Because of the lockdown there are a lot more people walking, even people without a dog. The footpath use has gone up and I think they should be kept a lot clearer.”

A resident, grateful for Henry’s work, said: “This makes walking so much more pleasant especially as so many of us rely on our daily walks to get us through the current crisis.  

“He has done the community a great service and I think it was hard work.”
