A campaign to promote courteous behaviour on countryside paths in West Sussex has been launched.

‘Think, Share, Be Aware’ aims to ensure the county’s countryside can be shared and enjoyed by walkers, riders and cyclists.

When using public rights of way West Sussex County Council is asking people to remember the following:

- Respect other visitors on your route and be courteous;

- Cyclists please slow down and give way to walkers, horse riders and wheelchair users;

- Please keep your dog under control and clear up after them. Any public bin will do;

- Be aware parts of the Downs Link passes through working farmland; and

- Take your litter home with you.

David Barling, WSCC’s cabinet member for residents’ services, said: “Whether by foot, hoof or bicycle, West Sussex boasts many countryside paths for adventurers of all ages to explore.

“The paths have seen an increase in the number of cyclists, ramblers, horse riders and dog walkers over recent years.

“If we can all think, share and be aware, these areas of outstanding natural beauty will always be around for future generations to enjoy.”
