The final stages of Ribble Valley Mayor Michael Ranson’s ambitious borough boundary walk take place over the coming months.

Councillor Ranson has revived 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 has been ‘beating the bounds’ by walking Ribble Valley’s 85-mile boundary in four to six-mile sections during his mayoral year.

The next section, from Longridge to Ribchester, takes place on Saturday, February 28, with further walks in March and April, and a grand finale in May.

Residents are invited to join the walks 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 walk will leave Mardale Car Park, Longridge, at 10am on Saturday 28 February, followed by Ribchester to Clayton-le-Dale on Saturday 14 March.
