A voluntary walking group is encouraging people to join them for a week of walking throughout the region’s natural beauty spots.
The Wrexham Walking Festival, an annual event which is organised by Walkabout Wrexham & District, is taking place from 10th to 16th June, 2018.
Local Assembly Member, Lesley Griffiths is a long-time supporter of the group and said: “As well as promoting the natural beauty and history of our region, the Wrexham Walking Festival is all about encouraging people to live healthier lifestyles and I commend Walkabout Wrexham & District for all their efforts.”
“Their annual festival has attracted people from across the UK to visit Wrexham and North East Wales and I hope this year’s event will be the most successful yet.”
During the week, people of all ages and abilities are invited to enjoy a series of walks exploring the beauty and history of North East Wales and the Dee Valley. Walks are graded depending on difficulty and are led by trained leaders. All walks are free with the group only asking participants wear suitable clothing and boots.
Walkabout Wrexham and District is made up of volunteer walk leaders and different representatives from the community who arrange free walks through funding, fundraising and donations. Walks take place throughout the year and all over Wrexham and the surrounding areas.
