Looking forward to Easter in Boroughbridge
The Christmas lights have been up in Boroughbridge, but within this busy market town some are planning even further ahead! To the weekend of Easter in fact, when the town puts on it’s ever popular annual Festival of Walks.
The town is proud to be part of the national Walkers are Welcome Towns network, the community led initiative of attractive destinations where all visitors are assured of a warm welcome. This years programme of guided family walks along with various other events, are again being put together by the Boroughbridge Walks Group.
Barry McCallum spokesman for the Group, said that the 2 previous festivals were so popular that they would be a hard act to follow “but we are determined that, in partnership with other groups, we will produce an even more popular festival for locals and visitors alike”.
Next year’s festival will run from Friday 3rd to Monday 6th April and as well as offering a range of interesting walks, will also have evening events and entertainment. “Most of our walks will be different from those in previous festivals” stated Mr McCallum. “But amongst them will be the ever popular Ghost Walk, where nearly 100 people turned up last time, a treasure hunt walk for children, and another walk in aid of a special charity.”
The programme is still being put together, and some exciting events still under wraps, will be added to it over the next few weeks. So keep looking on www.boroughbridgewalks.org.uk where more exciting walks and entertainment will be announced as they are added.
