Bingley in the Picture
Bingley Walkers are Welcome have teamed up with Bingley Camera Club and obtained a small grant from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority for a project to encourage people to walk. Physical activity such as walking has so many health benefits, and also provides a brilliant opportunity to use phones or cameras to take photographs.
Bingley say “We are particularly keen to encourage people who don’t normally go walking or take photographs to give it a go.We will be running a monthly photo walk challenge competition. To participate go to Bingley Walkers are Welcome website and choose one of our self-guided walks or join one of our second Sunday monthly group walks.We have also developed a new ‘photo-clue’ family friendly short walk around Bingley, where walkers follow the clues to solve a puzzle. Whichever walk is chosen, we will be encouraging walkers to take some photos, and they will be able to submit a photo from their walk and tell us a bit about themselves. We will choose a prize winner each month who will receive a £30 voucher to print out their photographs, with a grand prize of £50 awarded when the project finishes at the end of the year. Visit Bingley Walkers are Welcome or Bingley Camera Club’s website for further details. Bingley Camera Club will be hosting one of the walks at the Bingley Walking Festival on Bank Holiday Monday August 30th.”
Walkers are Welcome CIC has been pleased to be able to help Bingley to facilitate this grant funding in view of governance requirements.
