Rotary navigation walk welcomes YOU

Sunday’s Rotary Navigation Walk is still open to those who haven’t registered.

People wanting to take part in the sponsored walk along the banks of the Calder and Hebble canal can register at their chosen start point on April 7, between 8am and 4pm.

For those who have left it too late in the day for collecting sponsorship for the local hospices - the Rotary club has said that walkers can simply make a donation on the day.

The walk is a great activity to walk off those easter eggs we all over-indulged in, last weekend.

Rotarian Olwen Edwards said: “We are so impressed with the hundreds of peoples spirit in continuing to register and attract sponsorship for four local hospices: Overgate, Elland; Wakefield; Kirkwood Huddersfield; and Forget Me Not children’s hospice in Brackenhall.

“Make sure to come and say hello to the Rotarians on duty at your start and end stations. We look forward to meeting you.”

Cromwell Lock canal path in Elland offers an insightful diversion. Created 17 months ago, Cromwell Bottom nature reserve comprises of two lagoons, meadows, a spagnum bog, a bird feeding area - and even a picnicing area.

There are two miles of paths - half of which are wheelchair friendly.

Walkers can walk two, five, ten, 15 up to 20 miles along the canal banks. For more information on walking routes see
