SMEDMORE HILL – UCR 9
UCR 9 – SMEDMORE HILL
I NEED YOUR HELP!
Please do NOT drive along UCR 9 (Smedmore Hill) for the time being.
The routing shown on Ordnance Survey maps is very difficult to see on the ground.
I am currently in the midst of delicate negotiations with Dorset County Council Highways and the farmer to get the correct route re-established and signposted for ease of use.
To avoid any further issues please stay away from this UCR for the time being to avoid compromising the situation.
I’ll post more information as soon as I can and keep our Dorset GLASS Rep, Rob Elliott up to date with all the information as soon as it becomes available.
Many thanks for your help in this matter.

I have sadly had to take the decision to stand down with immediate effect as your Greenlanes Officer, due to circumstances that have arisen from a social media post.
It would appear that another club member took exception to a sarcastic reply I made and embarked on a dummy spitting session that would appear to be just as wholly unnecessary as my sarcasm!
I make no apology for my comment and the fallout from this was certainly not what I signed up for, I just can’t embrace any form officious behaviour when it is just a hobby (which I desperately want to continue enjoying) and I can’t allow any form of ‘politics’ detract from that enjoyment any longer, what has happened today has effectively become the straw that broke the camels back.
Some people forget that banter, sarcasm, mickey taking and humour is very much a part of this club, all of you are great people, some have become real friends of mine and I hope to continue greenlaning in the future with you as an ordinary club member.
This Fridays trip will still go ahead as planned, but it will be my last in an official capacity
Just as I was starting to feel a little better too…..typical!!!
