Rathdrum ‘Wellness Walks’ is a series of 4 walks taking place in the Rathdrum area .
The ‘wellness walks’ are physically beneficial and are also developed to help people relax in the outdoors, experience an activity in a group, encourage people to look at surroundings in a way they may not have been aware of, and integrate poetry and music into people’s everyday life experiences.
The walks are gentle and the experience will be inclusive. The walks are led by poet Jane Clarke who has extensive facilitation and community engagement experience. The events will include poetry and discussions about the landscape and nature. Musician James will provide music on the walks.
The walks are 3km - 5km, will be moderate in pace, and with a duration of 1 ½ hours. A steward will accompany the walkers.
The walks are designed for adults of any age and have moderate terrain underfoot; they are not suitable for buggies or toddlers, but babies in slings are welcome.
This is a free initiative but booking is essential. Participants can register to join one or all of the walks. When registered, participants will receive an email with the location and trail for each walk. Maximum 12 walkers per group.
Suitable clothing and footwear essential – waterproof clothing advisable.
