Walk this way for the Love2Walk Festival
17 June 2016
Starting this Saturday, the Love2Walk Festival (18 – 26 June) will invite walkers of all ages and abilities to pick up some historic tales as they clock up the miles.
The FREE annual walking festival, which is organised by Bridgend County Borough Council in partnership with the Local Access Forum and a team of volunteers, calls on local residents to lace up their walking boots or trainers to enjoy a week-long programme of walks that range in difficulty.
Many of the walks invite history buffs to brush up on their local knowledge, with highlights including a walk around Maesteg’s listed buildings on Thursday 23 June, and a harbour history walk in Porthcawl on Friday 24 June.
Nature lovers will enjoy being led by a knowledgeable guide on a bat walk around Porthcawl’s Wilderness Lake on Thursday 23 June from 9:30pm, while children will love the ‘Aliens in Underpants’ storywalk which starts from Bridgend Library on Saturday 18 June.
There are 31 walks in total, all of which are free of charge, although some require advance booking. For full details about all of the walks, please visit www.love2walk.co.uk
