The Chair of Frodsham Festival of Walks, Councillor Caroline Ashton, is encouraging people to organise a local walk on Sunday 20 June 2021 to participate in the Great Walk Together.
This UK-wide walk brings people together to celebrate the Great Get Together’s #MoreInCommon message, and simultaneously take part in Refugee Week and its theme, ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’, by inviting you to extend your hand to someone new. Organising a Great Walk Together is the perfect way to both encourage new community connections and reflect on the journeys that refugees face.
Anyone can organise a Great Walk Together – whether you’re a veteran at community organising or have never hosted an event before, The Great Get Together website provides the support you need to create your own community walk and ensure it runs smoothly. First download the Walk Organising Toolkit, which break down the ins and outs of organising a community walk, and provides downloadable resources that you can use. Why not use one of the downloadable self-led walks from the Frodsham Festival of Walks?
