BHS ‘GATES DAY’ – National Land Access Centre, Monday 23 September
Are you among the many of us who despair of there ever being a ‘perfect’ gate for use on bridleways?
The sad truth is that at present there is no such thing – but work is being done to find one! If you would like to know more about this and to share your experiences of what makes bridle gates useable or otherwise, the BHS will be running a Gates Day at the National Land Access Centre, Aston Rowant HP14 3YL on Monday 23 September, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tom Bindoff (founder of gate suppliers Centrewire) and Chris Beney (Open Spaces Society expert on British Standards for gates) will be there to talk about problem gates and the work that is being done to improve them. There will be a chance to look at riders using different types of gate and to discuss British Standards the BHS guidance. Delegates will also be encouraged to provide examples of gate problems within their areas.
If you would like to attend this free event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book. Places are limited so please reply as soon as possible and by Monday 2 September at the latest to reserve your place. Preference will be given initially to Access & Bridleways Officers and members of BHS Affiliated Bridleway Groups, so please say if you fall into either of those categories.
