Sharing Paths with a Smile

This February the South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) is encouraging everyone to get into the happy and courteous spirit of sharing our paths with a smile. When you pass by or bump into other people in the great outdoors, it is the perfect opportunity to give them, and you, a warm glow by sharing a simple hello!

SDNPASharethePathThe South Downs National Park contains hundreds of miles of shared paths ranging from iconic routes such as the South Downs Way to smaller local bridleways. These paths are enjoyed every day by ramblers, hikers, dog walkers, cyclists, horse riders, land owners and farmers. Spending time in the great outdoors is known to lift the spirits and you’ll almost always be greeted by a hello, thank you, excuse me or even a much obliged.

The SDNPA says, ‘The English are renowned for their courtesy, no more so than here in the South Downs. This February we’re encouraging everybody to get into the spirit and pass on a greeting as they meet others. So don’t be surprised if you get an even friendlier reception than usual if you’re out enjoying the National Park this week.’

It’s a lovely sentiment, one that can be applied nationwide, and you never know, you might just make someone else’s day. So smiles and cheery hellos at the ready…get out there and pass it on!
