We are holding our second full Weekend Walking Festival on the above dates, and will be offering 17 walks to suit all abilities, including a short fully accessible walk, wheelchair friendly, therefore suitable for all (carers free). We’ll be offering new walks, tweaking some others, using a number of experts to talk about specialist subjects en route which proved so popular at our last festival, as well as having our expert walk leaders to guide you. There will be walks for a range of interests and abilities; Quarrying, Geology, Railways, Canals, natural history, Singing, plus a Children’s Free Treasure Hunt and another “Walkies“ for dogs (and their owners) and a “Mindfulness” Walk, as well as walks around our local villages; so we hope there is something for everyone Many walks will start from the new Springfield Campus, which will be the Festival Headquarters for the weekend, with free parking,and in town on the Saturday and Sunday, though we will start some walks from locations around the area to give a wider range. We just need the weather to be kind!
We will be holding a Saturday evening supper and Quiz at The Campus, to which all are invited, walkers and non-walkers; we’re also holding an opening ceremony on the Friday to see the first walkers off. We’d love local clubs and groups to bring a team to our evening event and compete for “The Colden Boots” Award. We aim to make it fun.
We now have our own new website www.corshamwalkingfestival.org.uk which will have all the walk details on it; this will have all the information you need and walk descriptions. Brochures will be available from the start of April at the Town Hall, the TIC or for download via the website. Booking will start on 4th April via the Pound Box Office, or book directly via our website. In the meantime, do look at our website, there are many photos of last year’s Festival and links to other local walking groups in our area, and before too long it will have the plans for 2016 on it.
Hope to see lots of you in June, it’s a long way off, but something to look forward to whilst we await Spring
