Newick Rootz is a volunteer group working under the guidance of ESCC and supported by Newick Parish Council. The group is actively engaged in maintaining and improving public footpaths and bridleways in Newick Parish; we also look at tree planting for posterity. We repair and replace stiles and kissing gates, clear vegetation, erect fingerposts and install way-marking signs; and we enjoy ourselves whilst doing it!
