A light (hearted) walk

A light (hearted) walk

Friday 1st March, Leaving the Health Centre in Dromahair at 6.30pm, the walk will go through Dromahair Village to the park. The idea is for individuals, families, groups and clubs, to have a stroll and a chat and to welcome the first day of Spring. Walkers can join in and opt out at any stage. Hopefully we’ll soon have a playground, outdoor gym, naturewalk, etc. to celebrate. Tea, coffee & juice will be available at the Pavilion in the Park so please bring along a few sandwiches or biscuits to share if you can. Bring along a hi-vis jackets & torches to light up Dromahair.
