Working with sponsors for the community’s benefit

posted in: The Editor's Blog | 0

As an organisation we are always looking for new ideas to raise funds. This is very important to keep the books balanced as we have a duty to report annually to the national Executive Committee in order to keep our accreditation. One of our aims is to increase economic footfall for the town and the local area. That’s why having so many supporters displaying the Walkers are Welcome logo on their door or shop window is great publicity.

Bingley Biathlon – A Brilliant Fourth Edition! [14/07/2019]

posted in: Myrtle Park, Other Events | 0

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!

Here are some exciting guided walks organised in Bingley Prince of Wales Park this year by the Friends of Prince of Wales Park, one of the local organisations linked to us.

This Grade II Historic England listed woodland park has some good formal paths and drives but it is still recommended to wear good footwear as you may walk on tracks through woodland or across the open heath at the top of the park.

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.
