As would have been his wish, the work on the Monarch's Way continues through the team of Minders and Association members. The ultimate aim is to see the Monarch's Way designated as a National Trail. Caring for the route and promoting it will be a fit testimonial to Trevor.
One of our Members Dorrie Johnson has written a really excellent Poem on the work of The Minders.
Minders of The Monarch's Way
Forget dark-suited men
whose padded shoulders reach their ears;
forget their gloves and shades,
and, because you've watched TV,
forget the armpit bulge where you might guess
a gun is hidden.
These folk have outdoor faces,
friendly eyes; their hiking boots,
beneath the latest mud,
gleam with Dubbin shine;
their rucksacks carry notepads and one,
at least, of Antill's books.
They are custodians of a length
of path, maintain its health,
report on obstacles,
on flood destruction,
change of routes.
They re-mark ways
if signs become obscured or disappear.
They keep the path alive.
