The 4th annual Wirral Walking Festival takes place throughout May with more than 200 events planned.

Highlights include a 9 mile walk taking in Thurstaston and the Wirral Way and a charity dog walk between Meols and West Kirby, in aid of The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

Ranger Jo Hanik, who co-ordinates the Wirral Walking Festival, said: “We are delighted once again to have put together a schedule for the month-long festival which genuinely has something to offer everyone.

“I’d urge everyone to come along and enjoy the award winning parks and stunning coastline of the Wirral Peninsula.”

There are some practical tasks featured in the festival this year, including a series of volunteer path clearance days to help cut back and maintain the greenery along the Wirral Public Right of Way network.

The Wirral Ramblers have been heavily involved in the organisation of the festival, working alongside Wirral’s parks and countryside service.
