In this episode of the Walk Fife Podcast Sean is tucked up warm at home.
The weather isn’t podcast friendly and Sean has a cold so this week he is accompanied by a mug of Lemsip.
Fife Earth Park
To kick things off Sean answers some questions that have been sent in by listeners. The first question comes from Lucy who asks if there are any walking routes that the team would like to have on the website but just can’t. Sean talk about the abandoned Fife Earth Park site near Kelty. He explains the history behind the site and why it can’t be added to the Walk Fife website despite it being an interesting place to explore.
Over the summer months John noticed that there seemed to a rise in littering across Fife and he asks what we can do as walkers to help prevent it. Sean talks about our recent visit to a local project to clean up litter and how the decline in public litter and waste bins may be to blame. Sean asks for some suggestions from listeners which could help Walk Fife to inform and educate others about the litter problem across the Kingdom.
Rachel asks for some advice on buying daypack and how much she should be looking to spend to get one suitable to use while walking the Fife Coastal Path. Sean has a lot walking experience and shares some top tips on what to look for and what to avoid when shopping for a good daypack.
Walk Fife developments
There have been a few new developments on the Walk Fife website and Sean explains what they are and how you can assist. The latest addition is our What’s On Guide page where we will be featuring different events across Fife and Scotland that will be of interest to our community of walkers.
Before his voice gives out and he runs off for a Lemsip refill, Sean reminds us to take some extra safety measures when venturing out for walk this autumn and he also reminds us about the competition running on the Walk Fife website to win a Berghaus Arrow 30 Backpack.
