April Healthwalks

From Corinna Edwards-Colledge –

The new Spring/Summer programme will be out on the first of May.  We are changing the print schedule of our programme to Autumn/Winter: November – April, and Spring/Summer: May – October.  This is so that we can mail out the Get Active programme with the TAKEPART programme  in the summer, saving us (and you the taxpayer!) a considerable amount of money in postage.  That means for this year there is a month gap in April without a programme – so I’ve attached a mini programme, just for this month, which includes regular and special walks.

Happy Walking!
