Briton Ferry man David Channon is a Volunteer Ranger for Sustrans. Sustrans look after walking and cycling routes UK wide. Several Briton Ferry Residents walked the route this week and were delighted to see that David had painted what is known as The Millennium Mile Post Structure called The Fossil Tree, it is one of 3 in the area and was erected in 2000 with Lottery Funding.
David said “this particular one was overdue for a coat of paint and decided to pay tribute to our NHS and bring a smile to passing cyclists and walkers. All paints used, were recycled bits and bobs mixed to get the shades needed.” He also took time to ask passing children with their parents what colours they would like to see on the post.
