WHEN students of John Masefield High go back to class this September, they may find themselves spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a route to school.

A newly-re-opened footpath from Pound Meadow gives them the option of a short-cut through the Deer Park estate.

The path has re-opened despite some objections from local residents.

Town councillor Tony Bradford, who has been instrumental in getting the path re-opened, is now calling for Herefordshire Council to make sure the path is kept clear of both rubbish and encroaching foliage.
