Meet at 10 am at the Victoria Hotel Llanberis LL55 4TY - volunteers should expect to finish at approx. 4pm on both days.
Reference: OS Explorer Map OL17
Volunteers will spend the day with Andy learning practical, best practice skills in footpath path maintainence on a circular walk in the community of Llanberis.
The location has been chosen by Gwynedd Council Rights of Way team as one needing attention and suitable for a training day. Tasks will include :
• Maintenance to the existing footpath structures
• Removal of low overhanging branches causing obstructions

Additional work to a linking footpath will include repairs to stonework of footbridge abutment.

All equipment will be provided by Andy, but volunteers will need to dress appropriately for the tasks and the weather. Bring wet weather gear and packed lunch.
