October is South West Coast Path Challenge month, when people will be fulfilling their pledges to cover some of the best parts of the coast path, all to raise funds towards caring for this well-loved asset. You can join in with one of the organised challenges or pledge some miles and pick your own DIY challenge. To find out more, visit the South West Coast Path Association website.
