Kirkcaldy will be hosting it’s very first walking festival this coming July.
The festival will run from the 14th through to the 22nd and will offer a something for every walker.
The free festival will allow walkers to explore the coastal path, observe the well known seals basking on the shore alongside Seafield as well as many other activities all guaranteed to be enjoyable, informative and environmentally friendly. A fun and family-friendly festival of walking!
A full programme of events is available through the Greener Kirkcaldy website at – http://www.greenerkirkcaldy.org.uk/kirkcaldy-walking-festival/ – and printed copies are available to pick up in person from the Greener Kirkcaldy Hub (High Street), Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre and Kirkcaldy Library. A pdf copy of the programme is also available to download from their website.
The Kirkcaldy Walking Festival is the result of the partnership of several different organisations all working towards to making the area healthier and sustainable. The festival is an excellent example of a community coming together to benefit others and to help secure the future of generations to come.
Greener Kirkcaldy is a community-led charity and development trust working on a local scale to benefit people and our environment. They would like to see a future where everyone is able to heat their home affordably, eat well, and tread more lightly on our planet. The charity is coordinating this Walking Festival as part of their ‘Gear Change to Tackle Climate Change’ project funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.
