Call to Join Mayor's Borough Boundary WalkPublished Thursday, 25 September 2014
The next stages of Ribble Valley Mayor Michael Ranson’s ambitious borough boundary walk take place on 4 October and 22 November.
Councillor Ranson is reviving an ancient custom by walking the borough boundaries to raise cash for his chosen charities, Home-Start Ribble Valley and Crossroads Care Ribble Valley.
He is to ‘beat the bounds’ by walking Ribble Valley’s 85-mile boundary during his mayoral year.
He is undertaking the trek in 20 sections ranging from four to six miles and is inviting residents to join him.
The walks have been devised by Ribble Valley Borough Council’s health development officer Barrie Williams.
Twenty treks cover different sections of the borough boundary and a reasonable level of fitness and mobility is required to take part, although at least one of the walks will be accessible to mobility scooters, pushchairs and wheelchairs.
The next stage of the walk will leave High Barn, Chipping, at 11.00am on 4 October and process to Loud Side Farm, Chipping. On 22 November, the walk will leave Loud Side Farm at 11.00am and process to Longridge town centre.
The full Mayor's Boundary Walk programme is available from Barrie Williams on 01200 414484.
