Fundraising Walk – Chatelheralt Country Park 9th March 2013

On Saturday 9th March a fundraising walk will take place at Chatelherault Country Park to raise funds for new equipment. The event will be a great excuse for a free family day out, with the added benefit of getting some fresh air and exercise at the same time.

Chatelherault Country Park is an excellent park with great nature trails, a visitor centre, an adventure play park for the kids and a cosy tea room for those in need of a cuppa after the exertions of their walk.

We would recommend that everyone wears a waterproof jacket, warm layers and either walking boots or wells as it can get muddy! The challenge is open to everyone and there are two options, one for more experienced walkers and one for families with kids.

We hope you, your friends and family can join us on 9th March 2013. the meeting point is the visitor centre in the park at 10am. Please ensure you and your party have completed and returned their registration form to Lorna or Kirsty by Thursday 7th March. Their is no participation fee for taking part, we just as that you fundraise for the club – every penny counts.

For more information contact Lorna Singleton or Kirsty McCourt.

Walk Option 1

For those of you looking for a challenge then join us for the Green Bridge Trail. This trail is 8k long with an average walking time of 3 hours. We would suggest that teenagers and adults take this route but it may not be suitable for small children.

Walk Option 2

For families with small children or those who are a bit unsure about the Green Bridge Trail then why not join us on the Cadzow Oaks Trail which is approx. 40 mins (maybe slightly longer with very young children).
