On behalf of all the users of the Fitts (Whitby to Ruswarp) footpath, I should like to thank the gentleman who devoted the hottest day of the year so far to cutting back the nettles and undergrowth which have all but engulfed the path.

He is one of several who, individually rather than as a group, contribute to keeping the paths and the lower cinder track (including the drainage channel) clear of obstructions, litter and broken glass.

It is good to know that there are still public-spirited citizens willing and able to some extent to mitigate the lack of council services forced on us by George Osborne’s cuts.
