Plea from GLASS

I received this today, so am passing it on for awareness (/ donations!)

Dear GLASS member

No matter where you live almost every green laner and trail rider has heard of Happy Valley, Carn March Arthur, The Wayfarer and Horseshoe. These are some of the most iconic green lanes in the UK, but damage has been caused by those who choose to act outside the responsible green laning community. This, coupled with the impact of weather and water erosion, has left local authorities with some hefty repair bills they simply cannot cover - so we need to take steps to bring these important routes back to their former glory.

Over winter GLASS have been busy forming plans with Denbigh, Wrexham and Gwynedd County Councils, Snowdonia National Park Authority and local landowners – now it’s time for action!

GLASS are going to help fund these large projects which include:

Helicoptering hundreds of tons of stone to repair Happy Valley and Carn March Arthur
Bridge repairs, sleeper section maintenance, drainage improvement, signage and off-piste solutions on the Wayfarer
Signage and drainage improvement along the full length of Horseshoe
We’ll be digging into our fighting fund to complete each project, but the shortfall needs to be covered by donations. Money raised will be ring-fenced for these projects and any excess used for future maintenance on the routes.

Our crowdfunding page can be found here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/greenlaneassociation (Please note that during the process donations to JustGiving are optional)

A project overview and future ongoing updates can be found here: https://www.glass-uk.org/help-save-our-iconic-welsh-lanes.html

With your help we can ensure that some of the most well-known lanes in the UK are preserved for us all to drive for years to come.

Finally, don't forget to pass the link to donate onto any green laners you know.

Many thanks for your support....
