Those wanting to get out and about and enjoy the great outdoors this winter are invited to join in with the Ramblers’ Festival of Winter Walks.
For more than 25 years family, friends and avid walkers have stepped out in snow, sleet, rain and under clear winter skies as part of the annual festival. This year the Ramblers is once again providing free wintery walks in the area led by volunteers for everyone to enjoy.
The Berwick Ramblers group will be stepping out on Boxing Day, with a four mile leisurely walk through Fenwick, Kyloe Woods and East Kyloe. So if you want to walk off some of that Christmas turkey, why not join them? Meet at Wallace Green car park for 11.30am. No dogs allowed.
The group will also be taking a stroll on January 2, with a slightly longer six-mile circular route that takes in Heatherslaw, Hay Farm, Ford Moss and Slainsfield. Meet at Wallace Green car park for 10am, no dogs.
Ramblers chief executive Benedict Southworth said: “There is something wonderful about walking over the festive season; the company of family and friends, exploring beautiful winter landscapes under clear skies or the fun of being the first to make tracks in the snow, all of these things make getting out and about at this time of year even more of an adventure.
“Our Festival of Winter Walks is as popular as ever after 25 years. So, put on your winter coats, wrap up warm and join us again as we head out to enjoy the season the way we know best, on our feet.”
