Heather Parsons will resume her trail clearing efforts this year on 17 April. She has managed to get eleven volunteers to help this spring. They are from Germany, UK, New Zealand, USA and Czech Republic. In 2007, 250 way-marking discs were bought with money donated by SCAN. Stocks are now exhausted and other materials like gloves and hand tools need to be bought. Please help Heather to continue this great effort.

If anyone would like to make a donation, Heather has started a crowd-funding page here
Contact Heather on (0030) 6945249328 if you want to help with the clearing or for more information. The group this year will be concentrating on continuing the reopening of the Skopelos to Elios heritage trail.
