Pickering is now a Walkers are Welcome Town. This unique community-led scheme, run by the towns themselves, has rapidly grown since it was launched in the Pennine town of Hebden Bridge in 2007. There are now Walkers are Welcome towns in all parts of Britain, ready to make your visit a really enjoyable one.
Youíll know youíre in a Walkers are Welcome community when you see the familiar black and gold logo in shops, cafes and B&Bs. Youíll find Walkers are Welcome towns in some of Britainís beautiful (but perhaps less explored) areas: on the North Wales coast, in the Scottish southern uplands, in the Shropshire hills, the Pennines, the Yorkshire Wolds, the Tyne valley and now the North York Moors.
The number of Walkers are Welcome communities is growing rapidly, so for the full list go to the website www.walkersarewelcome.org.uk.
Pickering is the 26th town to be accredited the status of a Walkers are Welcome town, please visit the website at www.pickeringwaw.btik.com for more information.
The 2011 walking festival will take place from 8-10 April. Please visit our website for details.
