Get your walking boots on and join a fun, organised walk on Saturday 18th November to
celebrate World Hello Day in Lincoln.
Organised in partnership by Access Lincoln, City of Lincoln Council and Sustrans, the
celebration walk will start from six different locations across the city and meet in the middle
at St Mary le Wigford Church for tea and cake.
The led walks, which are all less than two miles long, will start at 10am from West
Common, South Common, Boultham Library, The Plough (Newark Road), Lincoln County
Hospital and Bishop Grosseteste University.
Anyone can come along and join in and fun activity packs will be provided for children,
including a ‘spot the smile’ game where posters of different animals smiling will be hidden
along the route!
Access Lincoln, a Lincolnshire County Council programme which promotes sustainable
and active travel in and around the city, is inviting everyone to come and join in with the
walks. Sarah Hubery of Access Lincoln, said: “World Hello Day is an international annual
celebration all about bringing people together and highlighting the importance of
communication within our communities.
“This year to help celebrate the annual day, we have organised a ‘web walk’ where people
from all corners of Lincoln will set off from different starting locations and come together to
meet in the middle - like a spider’s web!
“The walks are all less than two miles and will take roughly an hour, meaning the walks are
suitable for all ages and abilities.
“Once at St Mary le Wigford Church it will be another great opportunity for people to
socialise and for the children to play and have fun together. We hope everyone joins in on
the day and feels the benefits of not only walking but also feeling part of the community.”
