Campaign to Protect Rural England
We are pleased to offer two events from the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) for Welwyn Festival 2017.
A talk “Following the Swan” on Tuesday 20th June, and a Countryside Walk on Thursday 22nd June (note the date change).
Following the Swan – A walk of discovery down the Lea Valley. An illustrated talk by Elizabeth Hamilton in New Church House at 7:30pm, Tuesday 20th June.
The 50-mile long Lea Valley Walk was officially opened in 1993, with a swan featured on its way marks. Elizabeth Hamilton, our immediate past Chairman, discovered the Walk while leafing through old publications in the CPRE Herts. office. So far she has completed 30 miles.
All down the route there is much to discover. In her illustrated talk some of the river’s history, landscapes and wildlife will be unveiled and Elizabeth will suggest shorter walks for those wishing to discover the river for themselves.
Just turn up – no entrance fee – refreshments will be available.
COUNTRYSIDE WALK – a Midsummer Meander with the CPRE, starts 7pm on Thursday 22nd June.
The route is fairly level with a slight rise and no stiles, it includes Bladder Wood and part of the Ayot Greenway. Dogs are welcome, howver, they must be kept on leads at all times.
Please wear suitable clothing and footwear and note that whilst every effort will be made to ensure your safety all walkers take part at their own risk.
Places are limited so book yours now. The walk will start at the Ayot Greenway car park at 7pm and should finish before 9.30pm. There is no charge.
