Nigel Bottling, Chair of the National Executive, said “This was a first class application which clearly demonstrated not only how much the town offers to welcoming walkers, but the enthusiasm of those involved in wanting to improve what’s on offer.”Abergavenny’s Steering Group hopes to create an online resource for walking, developing packages with local businesses, creating a new range of simple walks from the town centre and working with the council to improve the local rights of way network. “To keep this prestigious award, the town has to show it is always looking to improve and there are many other initiatives planned,” said Ruth Coulthard, Chair of the Steering Group. A large launch event is planned for Easter when it is hoped over 100 people will gather on Castle Meadows.
