WI puts heart and sole into map up­date

EDP Norfolk - - The Mardler -

Walk­ers at Er­p­ing­ham have put their best boots on to up­date a 30-year-old walks map set around their vil­lage. Er­p­ing­ham with Calthorpe WI de­vised the orig­i­nal route with Nor­folk County Coun­cil in 1987 and re­cently their walk­ing group used it as one of their reg­u­lar Tues­day walks af­ter a copy of the map came to light.

It was so pop­u­lar that they de­cided to up­date it, ex­tend­ing it to take in Th­waite Com­mon, a wildlife haven, and the A140 bus stop to en­cour­age non-driv­ers.

As the group up­dated the map in­for­ma­tion, in­ter­est grew to the ex­tent that a new his­tory group was formed; mean­while the crafters and needle­women have seized on the map as the theme for their next long-term project.

The group plan to un­veil the new-look map this month. www.face­book.com/er­p­ing­hamwith­calthor­pewi
