2021 ANNUAL RIVERSIDE WALK

 

Good news!   A celebration Walk to mark coming out of lockdown is planned to begin at 10.00 am on Saturday 11th September, this year. We hope that you, your family and friends (and dog) will be able to join us.
 
The Walk will start and finish at New House Farm, in Old Crawley Road, where the owner has been very helpful in allowing us to park cars. The farm is very conveniently on the route of the 13-mile circular Walk around the town. We will be walking the route in a clockwise direction and more details will follow

 

Open to walkers and runners of all ages, there is no charge to join in. There were 320 participants in 2019, many accompanied by their dogs. This year, the walk will be led by Jill Shuker, an experienced leader well-known to local walkers. Jill has been an organiser and supporter of the event since 2014.

 

Not everyone will walk the total length and to help, a free mini bus will wait at agreed points to transport walkers back to the car park.
Those taking part will have an opportunity to donate to the local branch of the charity, Parkinson’s UK. Please help publicise this event by social media, newsletters, websites, talking to family, friends and workmates. Thank you.
 
COVID: the walk is of course subject to any Government advice and restrictions that may apply at the time.
To help planning for the second Saturday in September, please send a message to horshamriversidewalk@gmail.com or phone 07906 211030

 

Of course the route of the Riverside Walk is open all year round and we are pleased that a great many residents have been using it for their allowed exercise during lockdown. Please continue to make use of it and enjoy the scenery, nature and fresh air. Maps and information can be seen on our website page:-  www.horsham.community/riverside-walk/

 

We are sorry that we could not host a walk event in 2020 but are glad to hear that so many of you are looking forward to an event later this year.

The current situation makes it likely that we can get back to having our annual walks in 2022. Plans have already started for this and will confirm details as soon as we can.
