Week of Walks

Are you up for the WOW! Week of Walks?

Monday 3rd to Sunday 9th October 2016

To celebrate our 80 green open spaces and our friendly communities, The Bracknell Forest Society has organised a WOW! (Week of Walks). All local groups are challenged to walk, run, cycle or horse ride a circuit: schools, colleges, playgroups, businesses can do their circuits during the week; Scouts and Guides can take evening walks by torchlight and neighbourhoods can decide on a weekend walk. Groups can organise their own routes, or on the borough council website there are local circuits as pdf files available at www.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/walking.

A number of walks, by neighbourhood and in date order, usually lasting about an hour, are organised throughout the borough for anyone to join. Celebrate our renowned sense of community and take part!

Let’s make the WOW! Week an annual event!

Neighbourhood Day – Sunday 9th October, 3pm

Bracknell Forest is known as a very friendly borough. The WOW! Week ends with a Neighbourhood Day on Sunday 9th October. At 3pm residents are invited to take a plate of food to share to their nearest green open space, say hello to someone new and catch up with old friends. Plenty of spaces have playgrounds for youngsters and older children will be able to bring a soft ball. Neighbourhoods can organise their own welcoming get-togethers, however the larger venues are listed here and hosts have been organised to welcome you. Children are invited to bring a decorated pennant to be attached to a line of bunting.

Pick up your sticker and wear it with pride!
