Karen Lloyd who manages Active Ageing Bristol is delighted to announce that Walkfest is set to return to Bristol. Walkfest aims to encourage people to get walking or walk more and in the past it has had thousands of people joining in. Last year was cancelled but this year, Karen is working with Bristol City Council on an exciting new partnership with app developers, Go Jauntly. Go Jauntly is a free community-based App which promotes walking and wayfinding; the app will be used as a part of WalkFest to map local walks across Bristol. The aim of the partnership is to bring together a host of walks from different communities, organisations and individuals across Bristol, providing a platform for Bristolians to explore more walks in their area. The walks can be separated into categories and themes e.g. history, family-friendly, disability-friendly, short walks etc. so that anyone (with any level of fitness) can take part.
Karen will be speaking at an online event on 23rd February introducing the app and informing users how to add walks. You can find out more and register your space here.
