Walkers are Welcome Annual Get-Togethers

In 2012 we decided to rename our Annual Conference ‘Get-Together’ to steer away from the stuffy conference image and encourage more people to attend what we believe are informative, inspiring and enjoyable events for Walkers are Welcome members and associates. This annual gathering is usually held in October each year where all WaW members are invited for the purpose of making new friends, networking and sharing best practice.

We now usually combine the two-day event with some walking, an evening meal to get to know one another and informative talks or workshops. We squeeze in a very quick General Meeting to keep the formalities as short as possible. We would love to see you for either a day out, the two-day break or even longer. It is always good to meet each other, going home refreshed and inspired from the experience. The event is very casual and too good to miss.

Your town could host the 2023 Walkers are Welcome Get-Together.

Walkers are Welcome Annual  Get-Together 2022

Will be hosted by:  Alton, Hampshire

Alton is looking forward to welcoming you all to our Autumn walking festival, which runs from Tuesday 4th through to Sunday 9th October 2022, with the WaW General Meeting  on the morning of Saturday 8th. We run three walks a day (under 5 miles, 5-10 miles and over 10 miles) and on the Saturday there will also be talks, presentations, workshops and events in the town to entertain you. Our programme is being put together at the moment, but with long-distance trails on our doorstep including The Writers’ Way (linking Jane Austen’s house to Gilbert White’s home), the Lost Railway walk, the Watercress Steam Railway with their RAT (Real Ale Train) train, our Ghost walk and a variety of local independent businesses catering to your food, gift and creative interests, we are sure there will be something to suit everyone.
