Signpost Auction Success

The auction of 18 genuine, old, oak finger posts from around the South West Coast Path this month was very popular. Bidding on the finger posts was only available to members of the Association and to a closed group on Facebook who help to support the Path.


Thank you to everyone that took an interest in the auction and made a bid on one or more of these lots. We raised £1836.42 in total for the Path to keep it amazing for future generations. We thought there would be a good response but this was way above what we expected. The money raised is equivalent to around the cost of installing eight new fingerposts, costing £250 each.

Next year, when we have received another batch of finger posts from rangers around the Path we will organise another auction. We are also looking to create other opportunties to offer items from the Coast Path to members in the future. So watch this space.

If you would like us to put you on a specific mailing list to keep you informed of future auctions please email [email protected].
