This year’s walking festival will take place from 27 June to 5 July. The theme will be “Inspiring Landscapes” giving a very broad remit from the Picturesque to geology and industry. If you could lead a walk the organisers would like to hear from you. The AGM will be held at Raglan Primary School, Chepstow Road, Raglan, NP15 2EN at 7pm on Monday 2 March. It is proposed that the Festival broadens its range and takes in the Forest of Dean. It is felt that this will give access to a larger pool of walk leaders, a wider area to explore and may increase interest in the festival.
