Over the next couple of months, we are heading outside for Story Walks.
Walkers will venture into the great outdoors and visit local parks to hunt for bugs, read some favourite stories, and explore the local parks, gardens and towns.
There are walks for adults and some designed for families and young children.
The first few walks, all for children and parents, included:
- Bishops Stortford Library enjoyed a stroll around Castle Gardens and a reading of 'You must bring your hat!' by Simon Philip and Kate Hindley
- Oakmere Library and Hoddesdon Library both went on a Family Nature Walk and found plenty of creepy crawlies to look a
Other upcoming Story Walks include:
- 21 September – WatfordLibrary
- 21 September – Ware Library
- 25 September – Royston Library
- 9 October – Welwyn Garden City Library
- 12 October – Letchworth Library
- 17 October – Tring Library
Refreshments will be available afterwards at the library.
Spaces are limited, so booking is essential via the library hosting the event.
These are free events, but donations are welcome.
Remember to come prepared for the weather, be it rain or shine, and wear shoes you are comfortable walking in. All of the walks are gentle and accessible.
