There are walks all over Telford , we hope lots of our walkers will join in and we hope to use the day to recruit new walkers and possibly walk locations.
We were asked to put on a weekend briefing for leaders for the Get Telford Walking walks. So we have arranged to run another briefing session on May 4th from 10 am to 12 noon, venue to the confirmed.
The flier for Get Telford Walking is here
The Telford T50 50 Mile Trail consortium, working with Health and Well Being of Telford and Wrekin Council , have organised a day when they aim to get as many people in Telford walking. There will be walks from each doctor’s surgery at 10.00 am and from each surgery to Telford Town Park using the T50 50 mile Trail. See https://www.telfordt5050miletrail.org.uk/get-telford-walking
Several of our leaders will be leading groups.
Our Chair worked with Newport Rotary to produce and distribute a map of the benches in Newport
Our Chair received a defibrillator from DENSO for installation at one of the places where our walks start. DENSO have purchased a number of these valuable devices to give to local community groups because they recently had a member of their own staff collapse and their First Aiders used one of these device to save their colleagues life. The team that came to the aid of the DENSO employee are shown in the photo.
The next walk leader training is booked for March 8th 2019 at the Madeley Court Medical Practice. If you would like to help us grow our acheme, please come to the training. Booking and further details from [email protected]
Until further notice the Lilleshall Thursday evening group are meeting at 6 pm at The Last Inn (recently called Aston’s) car park, TF10 9EJ
