What's on 2019

 

 

 

SPONSORED WALK
SUNDAY 19th MAY

TIME: TBA

Join us for a sponsored walk along the Castleman Trailway starting at West Moors and finishing at Upton Country Park. This is a 10 mile route but people wanting a shorter walk will be able to join in along the path to the Park. As it’s the 40th anniversary of the MNDA we are hoping to get 40 people walking and raising £10 each in sponsorship. A great chance to walk the dog, exercise the children and work up an appetite for a Sunday roast. Further details will be available soon.
