Councillor Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Cultural Service, said, “Christmas is a magical time to enjoy a walk in the fresh air on a cold crisp and sunny day. It's a great way to enjoy some time out from the demands of the festive season. Why don’t you join us for our festive walks and meet new people? You never know: what starts out as a one-off stroll could lead to life-long friendships and a love of walking.”
