Walk Works, a new Community Interest Company, founded by Vicki Smith and Fran Wilde aims to explore Black Country heritage and the arts through outdo events, mainly walks for looking and experiencing.
The good news is that they have been commissioned by the Office of Public Health in Dudley to run four walks along Brierley Hill Canal to demonstrate the contribution walking makes to helping us feel good.
The walks will take place on Thursdays 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd October. They will start at the statue of John Northwood, near to the Marks and Spencer/Argos entrance at Merry Hill, at 10.30am and finish around noon.
I’ve had the good experience to have been on one of Fran and Vicki’s walks before – in Cradley Heath – and found their local knowledge fascinating. So I’m happy to recommend this if you’re free on any of those Thursdays. Booking and other information are in the flyer below.
