Free Family Fun Day!

January 17, 2017

This Saturday (21 January) sees Tatton Park re-launching their programme of ‘Footpaths to Fitness’ walks for 2017 with a family fun day at the Welcome café in Longridge. All activities are free and include a climbing wall and prize draw. Refreshments are also included.

The event runs from 11 am until 3pm and will give lots of opportunities to win prizes plus allowing  people to  book onto the walks of their choice – the first of which is the popular deer walk on Saturday 28 January. There are eight different walks in the programme ranging from Nature Trails to Farm Walks and a folklore-based stroll around Dairy Wood. All are FREE and include transport into the park from the Welcome Café plus a refreshments voucher for Tatton’s Stables restaurant

Flora the Explorer who is one of the guides who will be taking people walking around the park as part of the programme. Flora was introduced to customers at the Welcome Café in Longridge – at the heart of the communities who are expected to benefit from the scheme.

The walks are aimed at introducing people, young and old, to the health and social benefits of walking - the gentlest form of exercise, especially when done in the beautiful surroundings of Tatton’s extensive parkland and gardens.
