What to expect on the day
Take the shorter 3km walk for a gentle stroll around the lake which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 6km walk will take you on a full loop of the lake, and includes some woodland paths so don’t forget your wellies and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.
All routes will start and finish on the events lawn where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass. Amongst the atmosphere take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.
