When all other local walks in the borough were cancelled, and whilst many folk were hiding away from the recent snow and bitterly cold weather brought to us from the ‘Beast from the East’, our hardy bunch of walkers from the Lighthouse Project Best Foot Forward walking group set off and enjoyed a refreshing walk in Alkrington woods.

The group were welcomed back at base with a warm bowl of soup and refreshments to help get the circulation going again.

Our walking group is aimed at meeting the needs of all abilities so if you fancy giving it a go then please come along to the Lighthouse Project on a Friday for about 11:45am ready to go out about 12 noon for an hour or so, and then back for lunch and more time to chat.

The group encourages you to build up your walking experience and as an incentive you can earn different T-shirts to mark the number of walks you have attended.
