The trail was established in 2018 to celebrate Telford’s 50th anniversary.
Since then, it has been well used for recreation, charity events and ultra and relay events. There is a guidebook, this generates an income which is used to support the trail. The state of the trail is monitored by a panel of champions who look after set stages.
Any problems they find are either dealt with by them, by members of the committee or referred to Telford and Wrekin Council.
In 2023 the group applied for a grant to establish and waymark 23 short circular Coronation Walks throughout the Borough. Work on these is progressing well.
The group runs a website a Facebook page and holds occasional events.
The group is looking for new blood on the committee. Ideally they would like for a new secretary (a minutes secretary would be a help), possibly a new chair (although the current secretary is happy to take this if a new secretary can be found), but new people on the committee would be welcome.
The time commitment varies tremendously so flexibility is another key asset.
The committee meets about 8 times a year, in the early evenings, by Zoom.
The chair chairs these meetings and takes a lead in all the major decisions of the group.
The current secretary mainly deals with any incoming emails, prepares agendas and minutes, looks after the website , issues certificates on request to those completing the trail, administers the annual Relay Challenge, represents the group on the Local Access Forum, sends occasional emails to the Mail chimp list of members and is one of the Facebook admins.
With a new secretary, some of these tasks could be delegated to others on the committee. .
