Families are being encouraged to take part in the Walk for Willen this year thanks to a new addition to the schedule.

The Family Festival will be part of the event for the first time ever and will include entertainment before and after the sponsored walk in the form of a Zumba warm up, Bolivian Sunshine Dogs Band, Fraser’s Rag ‘n’ RollBand and much more.

The sponsored walk will see participants taking on one of three options including a three mile circuit of both lakes, a shorter walk of one and a half miles or around both lakes twice at a distance of six miles.

The event starts at 11am on June 2.

Community fundraiser, Allison Waterhouse, said: “We’re really looking forward to our Walk for Willen and this year’s new Family Festival. It’s going to be a great, fun event to be enjoyed by those with two legs or four and we are looking forward to seeing lots of walkers and families enjoying the day.”

Registration is £6 for adults and £2 for under 16s.
