National Themed Events
The Annual Get-together in 2019 gave its blessing to the idea of themed events. A sub-group of the National Committee is organising this activity.
The purposes are
- to do something of value to local communities
- to give a platform to raise the profile of Walkers are Welcome, both locally and nationally
- to build cohesion between Walkers are Welcome groups
- to have fun and get a sense of well-being through doing something worthwhile
- National tree week 2020 The Tree Council’s National Tree Week runs from 28th November to 6th December. We are encouraging those of our member towns and villages, who are currently holding small group walks for the benefit of their local community, to hold a woodland walk during National Tree Walk to celebrate the work of The Tree Council. These walks will be listed on our events page and, also, if appropriate on the Tree Council’s calendar. Other activities are welcome too, e.g. publicising self-guided walks in woodland or just publishing a news item abut a special local tree.
