Walk The Walk
If you’ve been thinking you ought to get out and about a bit more this summer, it’s time to walk the walk and get along to a fabulous family fun day to find out everything you need to know about walking for sheer enjoyment on the beautiful island of Anglesey.
On Saturday 20 July 2013, Beaumaris plays host to Walk the Walk, an event which will showcase all that’s good about walking on Anglesey for everyone from youngsters to pram-pushing families and older people.
The event is part of Anglesey County Council’s Ymweld â Môn project, which has received funding through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007-2013 which is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The project aims to help develop tourism activities which will benefit the island’s economy in a sustainable way.
It’s designed to showcase the very best of Anglesey and inspire locals and visitors alike to explore the island and its many attractions. Whether a young family with small children in pushchairs, an enthusiastic, long-distance walker or simply out for a relaxing stroll, Anglesey has something to offer.
Its coastline, villages and history are there to be discovered, and Walk the Walk, which will take place adjacent to the town of Beaumaris, in the shadow of its historic castle, and right next to the Menai Straits with jaw-dropping views over Snowdonia, will give you all you need to wet your appetite.
An Anglesey Showcase covered marquee will house local groups, societies and businesses, who will be on hand throughout the day to give information, advice and guidance on where to walk on the Island, where to stop off and eat, and how to make sure you have the best clothing and footwear.
To add to the incentive to visit Beaumaris, local performers will keep you entertained with song and dance, and a “Little People’s Corner” will make sure younger visitors are spellbound with storytellers, face painters and balloon modellers – and there’ll be an opportunity to experience how relaxing life on Anglesey can be by taking up a fun challenge to walk 100 metres – as slowly as you can!
