People are needed to lead walks in the first ever South Lincolnshire Walking Festival.

Heritage Lincolnshire, a charitable trust based in Heckington, is urging organisations and businesses to volunteer to lead the walks.

The festival will take place between September 25 and October 31 and will feature free guided walks in North and South Kesteven, Boston and South Holland. There are already around 30 different walks lined up so far, led by organisations such as the Ramblers, Walking for Health groups, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, the Forestry Commission and the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology.

Beverley Gormley, Heritage Lincolnshire’s Cultural Events Officer, said “South Lincolnshire has a varied landscape that has witnessed Bronze Age burials, Iron Age mints, Roman forts, the Knights Templar, castles and abbeys but the festival isn’t only for history lovers. Whether you want to roam with Ramblers, have an adventure with your kids, get snapping on a photography foray or get fit on a health trail, there’s something for everyone.”

Anyone who’s interested can go to www.southlincswalking.com or our Facebook or Twitter pages to find out more.

If you or your organisation are interested in leading a walk, your business would like a walk to start or finish at their premises, or you would like your organisation to be featured in the brochure email slwf@lincsheritage.org or phone 01529 461499 before February 2015.
