Praise for organisers of Pendle's walking festival
3:21pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
TREK leaders have been praised ahead of the launch of Pendle’s 10th annual walking festival.
Experienced volunteers are the backbone of the borough-wide rambling fiesta, which kicks off on August 31.
Coun Paul White, the borough council’s tourism champion, has thanked their dedication ahead of the event, which features more than 70 hikes, ranging from gentle strolls to challenging slogs.
He said: “As we get ready for the start of our 10th annual festival, we want to express our gratitude to the walk leaders who give up their own time to lead walks around Pendle. Some of our walk leaders have been with us for the whole decade – now that’s dedication. Like us, they and our other walk leaders recognise what a wonderful place Pendle is for walking and share their enthusiasm with walkers throughout the festival.
“The festival would not have grown as much as it is has without their support.”
