EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS RISK, PLEASE SEE STATEMENT BELOW
In the light of Monday’s Government advice that all non-essential contact should be avoided due to the Covid-19 pandemic it is with regret that we have decided to cancel the Kington Walks Spring Weekend. All bookings will be refunded. If the booking was paid for via PayPal then the refund will be made back via PayPal; if it was paid for by cheque then a cheque will be sent back to the address on the booking form. We will try and process the refunds as quickly as possible, hopefully in next 10 days, but please be patient as our volunteers have many other issues to address.
Many thanks to all the people who have made bookings for the Spring Weekend. It is obviously very disappointing, especially for all our volunteers who have put in a lot of hard work to create the Spring Weekend. However, we will continue the work that is presently being carried out to create a great programme of walks and events for our main Festival in September (17th – 20th) and details should be available by the end of May. We look forward to your continued support and seeing you all then.
The Kington Walking Festival is the primary annual event of the Kington Walks charity with the Kington Walks Festival being held in September as usual. By popular demand, however, the committee are introducing a Spring Weekend to give everyone a chance to experience the glorious countryside at a different time of year. Think daffodils, bluebells, wood anemones, lambs, and trees in bud and maybe blossom!
Kington is one of the great small market towns of Britain. Situated close to the Welsh border it was for centuries a centre for cattle drovers, so a web of footpaths and byways, accessible on foot from the town centre await discovery by present day walkers. The Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, the Herefordshire Trail, Mortimer Trail from Ludlow, and the Wyche Way from Broadway all pass through (or start/finish) in the town.
The base cost for most walks is £5.50 for a half day and £7.50 for a longer walk. Some walks involve an additional cost to cover transport, food or admission charges.
