Subject:                          Go out with a bang this November



Over the next few days, towns and villages all along the South West Coast Path will be coming together to celebrate bonfire night. It’s the perfect time to wrap up warm, go for a nice walk, then join in with festivities to see the dark skies come alive with colourful fireworks. We’ve selected some of the best coastal displays taking place, so if you haven’t made plans on where to go yet – you’ll be spoilt for choice!

It's been a VERY busy month, so we also have a lot of other news to update you on. We bring you the latest on the new road at Slapton, an update on #40FOR40, share highlights from this year’s South West Coast Path Challenge, and launch our new competition 'Paws on the Path'.

If you want to hear more from us, receive exclusive discounts at businesses on or near the South West Coast Path and help care for the Path, please consider becoming a member. You can find out more about joining the Association by clicking here. You also have until 4th December to take up our special Christmas Membership offer (see below for more details), which could be the perfect present for a friend or loved one this Christmas. 

Have a great month!
