Free Led Walks At Launch Event – 9 June

On June 9th 3-2-1 Walks is launched in /Rastrick, near Brighouse. They’ve plotted out three routes, all starting from the Space @ Field Lane, a busy community centre with a cafe and its own walking group – the address is The Space, Burnsall Road, Field Lane HD3 3JT.

The 1km route is suitable for wheelchairs, being flat and on pavements with dropped curbs at all crossing points.

At the launch event, on 9 June, you can join led walks at 2pm and 3.30pm, when volunteers will show you round one of the three routes.
