Sadly and for obvious reasons we decided to cancel our annual Walking Festival in 2020. However, things are brightening up and we are planning to hold our 2021 Walking Festival on Bank Holiday Monday August 30th. This will of course be subject to Government guidelines. More details will be posted on…
Black Girls Hike (BGH) have recently contacted us as they were looking to organise their first walk in Yorkshire with a start in Bingley. The group provides a safe space for Black women to explore the outdoors. The aim of the group is to develop services and projects to increase the participation and development of Black women in the outdoors, and opportunities to engage. It seeks to encourage Black women to reconnect with nature; the group hosts nationwide group hikes, outdoor activity days and training events.
