South East Cornwall Walking Festival
Running for over a decade now, the South East Cornwall Walking Festival is a weeklong festival of walks around south east Cornwall taking in seaside villages, rural hamlets, the Tamar Valley and edge of Bodmin Moor.
Putting the ‘East’ back into the walking festival
This year’s festival will see the emphasis on walks in the eastern part of South East Cornwall. It also goes to show that there are walks going on around the area all year round organized by volunteers groups such as the Ramblers. The official dates of this year’s festival are the 12th to the 18th September but there are two walks being arranged for the South West Coast Paths Great South West Walks festival that we are including this year, these take place the week after.
Walks are still to be finalised and it is best to check the Tourist Information Centre’s website at www.looeguide.co.uk in the weeks leading up to the festival for full details, or just pop in and see them.
This walk MUST be booked in advance with a minimum donation of £7.50 to the SWCP Association For more details go to http://www.southwestcoastpath.org.uk/great-sw-walks/
Most walks are free. However walks leaders may ask for a donation (suggested £4/£5) to go towards costs of putting the festival on or towards a charity of their choice.
The festival receives no funding and all walks leaders volunteer their time.
