Jim Dunlop Memorial Community Walking Festival going at great pace

East Ayrshire Council's Lifestyle Development and Community Wellbeing Team are once again enjoying hosting the Community Walking Festival in honour of the late Jim Dunlop who devoted many hours of his time volunteering as a Walk Leader with the team.

Jim was a great believer in getting as many people as possible involved in physical activity and exercise regardless of their age or ability.

The Walking Festival, which runs until 28 August, involves a range of walks taking place aimed at all ages and abilities. It kicked off with the "Two Castles" (Dean and Craufurdland) Walk in Kilmarnock before moving on to Dumfries House near Cumnock with a led walk exploring its extensive grounds

On Wednesday 24 August there will be the Water Meetings walk at Kilmaurs, while on Thursday the team visits Dunlop for a walk around the village.

The finale of the Walking Festival will take place on the Saturday with a walk from Galston to Loudon Hill.   

Why not go along and join in? Dogs and children are very welcome!
