Reddish and Brinnington Protecting The Vale

The Community Safety Team, the police, the wardens, the Tame Valley Defence Group, The Friends of the Vale, the ASBAT team, Housing, and other governing agencies have regualr meetings to update the information on combating the dangerous activity of off-road biking. The next meeting is on Monday 14th August at 4pm at the Visitor Centre in Reddish Vale. Don't say that no one is doing anything. A number of community groups are trying to avert a tragedy with this dangerous activity. We are just as concerned about the safety of the riders as we are about the safety of pedestrians. Everyone should know by now that off-road biking is illegal except on private land with the landowner's permission. There is not permission to ride on footpaths or on public land.
