Plans are well under way for the 10th anniversary of this Festival 10 – 19 May. Since last year the Friends of Garstang Walking Festival has been formed and is helping to support the future success and development of the Festival. Information from 01995 672230 concerning membership,
Walks in 2013 will include the hardy perennial 4 day 40+ miles of the Wyre Way while there are opportunities as always with short and long walks to enjoy fells, flora, fauna and farmland. New for 2013 will be a house and garden visit to Wyresdale Hall, Scorton and for children, wall climbing and archery with PGL at Winmarleigh Hall. Be amongst the first people on the inaugural leg of the Fair Trade Way from Preston to the Fig Tree in Garstang.
There will be a river based walk each day exploring the Wyre, Brock and Calder, while the history of our area will be brought to life by well known historian Paul Smith.
And there will be so much more – well it is our 10th Anniversary and 10 is a significant number.
There are 10 commandments – the walk leaders don’t command, more suggest and inform.
10 trials of Israel – well we do look a bit tribe-like as we set off on the walks.
10 hours act – the law limiting hours of work in factories. No walks are planned to exceed these hours.
No 10 Downing Street – is in London we won’t go there.
10 Pointed – prize stag – well you too will feel like a prize winner about yourself after taking part.
10 to 1 are good odds with a very strong possibility of happening.
Like our Walking Festival which begins on the 10th May and lasts for 10 days.
Bookings and information can be obtained from the award winning Garstang Visitor Centre in the New Year. Call 01995 602125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
