Walks lifting the lid on Swinton and Kilnhurst's past and present

TWO and four-legged participants enjoyed the first in a series of walks aimed at tackling social isolation while learning about the history of Swinton and Kilnhurst.

The walks have been organised by the three ward borough councillors, Ken Wyatt, Victoria Cusworth and Stuart Sansome.

They are open to all and will be no more than two to three miles long, with the aim of getting people active and meeting new friends.

Last month’s inaugural walk explored Swinton’s pottery-making history and was well attended by people and their dogs.

The monthly walks are scheduled to take place the last Wednesday of every month.

All ages are encouraged to join the walks, and tots in buggies and well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The next walk on Wednesday, August 28, leaves the Kings Head pub, Rockingham Road, at 10.30am and will finish at the same spot.

There will be the option of staying for a drink and meal together as a group afterwards.

For more information, call Cllr Sansome on 01709 875335.
