Tim Jones, Chairman of the South West Business Council said of the partnership - 


“The South West Coast Path Association are front runners in ensuring that the challenges we now face regarding physical and mental fitness can be tackled. The National Trail is a huge asset which too many within the region have not fully appreciated - Covid-19 has lifted the lid on the need for healthier communities and healthier businesses. Damage to the footpath over the winter requires constant effort to repair, and with climate change the level of damage will only increase. If the investment can’t be met to maintain, improve and protect these assets they will be seriously under threat. We, as a community, need to do all we can to protect this great network.”
