National Themed Events

The Annual Get-together in 2019 gave its blessing to the idea of themed events. This venture is being organised by a sub-group of the National Committee .

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

The events:

  • Future Events- Watch this space for details as we firm up our ideas. 
    • Slow Ways Swarm Weekend , 25th – 27th March 2022
    • Litter Pick  Spring, 2022
      • We are suggesting that our  towns/villages  sign up to the Keep Britain Tidy campaign which is running from 25 March to 10 April this year. See  . Please let us know, by submitting an event to our event page, or otherwise,  if you do this so we can publish it on a dedicated page. 
    • Heritage Open Days,  September 2022
      • The theme for this year’s event, running from September 9th to 18th ,  is Astounding Inventions. Registration opens on March 1st .  If you don’t have a  the capacity to put on your own event, perhaps you could arrange a visit to one.  The calendar is published on June 1st.  Again, please let us know your plans.
