About Us

Wem Parish Paths Partnership is a small group of volunteers dedicated to the upkeep of public footpaths and rights of way across Wem Parishes.

It would also be great to get feedback from the wider community on the state of our footpaths and public rights of way 

Meet Ups

We will be organising regular meet-ups so that we can walk and explore the parish together.

Dates will be available soon.
