We don’t usually share events which are not walk related but on this occasion we believe there is enough ground for us to make an exception:
it’s a community event involving three local organisations
it’s a family fun day
it’s happening locally using local facilities (Bingley Pool and Myrtle Park)
So let’s make this a success and hopefully it will be a recurring annual event for many years to come!
Bingley Walkers are Welcome is now two years old and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors and supporters for your continued support over the past years. We will be holding our second Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 25th April at Cardigan House, Ferncliffe Road, Bingley. BD16 2TA. The meeting will start at 7.30 prompt and we will provide tea and coffee on arrival.
Planned to introduce non-birders to birds in St.Ives Estate, the walks can take up to 3 hours depending upon weather and the birds. They take place in all weathers so please come ready for the conditions with suitable footwear. Children are welcome but dogs will hinder our chances of getting close to the birds. Open to all and free of charge.
Why not join us on one of our regular Sunday walks? They always take place on the second Sunday of every month starting outside Bingley Arts Centre at 10am. The walks will be approximately five miles / 2 hours. What do you need? Bring liquid refreshment and wear walking boots. After the walk we usually have lunch or a drink in one of the town’s welcoming cafés. Most of them now display our “Walkers are Welcome” stickers in their windows.
Bingley Canal Festival is a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the full opening of the Leeds Liverpool Canal. On Sunday 16th October our town is really going to come to life during Bingley Canal Festival! We will have both indoor and outdoor markets situated at The Arts Centre and Market square with a multitude of stalls for people to view. Our local businesses will be open for refreshments and we will have entertainment at various points across the town throughout the day. The canal tow paths will also have stalls and entertainment throughout the day!
This is going to be a fabulous celebration for the town and Bingley Walkers are Welcome is officially part of it. Hope you can make it and please come to our stall on the day!
