Have your say

WALKERS are urging Rotherham folk to step out on free events to promote healthier lifestyles.

The Ramblers’ Get Walking Week includes hundreds of fun, short trips around the country, and two in South Yorkshire.

On Saturday, May 4 from 10am, the Rotherham Metro Ramblers will walk five miles from the Blue Bell pub in Aston. Dogs and children are welcome.

Dearne Valley Ramblers will lead a five-mile trek over lanes and fields around Thrybergh Country Park on Wednesday May 8, from 6.30pm.

The aim of the walking week is to get 100,000 people to their feet to promote healthy and happy lifestyles.
