If you like to try new things, want to achieve something a bit different and love to do things on foot, then the Love2Walk festival is back in Bridgend this October to celebrate the joy of walking! So come along and experience the outstanding views, flora and fauna and landmarks that the county has to offer.
The festival, which is developed by a partnership of community organisations, private businesses and Bridgend County Borough Council, is set to be the biggest yet. Walkers will have the opportunity to take part in over 40 walks to explore all areas of Bridgend County Borough from the 1 – 9 October 2011. Each walk will offer a different experience so there will be something available for all ages, abilities and interests.
New walks have been introduced on to the 2011 programme which includes zorbing on water, astronomy, archaeology and a dairy farm walk. The programme also features the most popular walks from the last two years – ‘Ghostly Encounters’, ‘Wild Food Foraging’ and ‘Go Batty at Bryngarw’ plus a range of other favourites such as Nordic waking, and scenic and industrial heritage walks.
Love2Walk is also offering an opportunity to win a break in a Romany Caravan by entering a competition on Facebook. All you have to do is upload a photograph or video of your favourite walks in Wales and explain what makes them great.
This project has been funded by Reach Rural Development Programme, Bridgend County Borough Council and Capital Region Tourism.
