Christmas is a time to eat, drink and get together with family and friends, sometimes we may over indulge on delicious festive food, if this is the case why not get outdoors, stretch your legs and walk it off.

For more than 25 years The Ramblers Association have organised a two week ‘Festival of Winter Walks’, 19th December 2015 – 3rd January 2016, to encourage everyone to get outdoors and enjoy our beautiful landscapes, there are hundreds of free group walks to choose from which are open to all. Whatever your age or ability there is a walk for you; fun festive-themed walks for little ones, leisurely strolls under 5 miles or longer walks for those who want more of a challenge for further information or to find a walk near you click here to visit their website.

In Ribchester there is an organised village Christmas walk it is called ‘The Annual Winter Walk for Pudding-full People’ and is now in its 27th year, it is about six to seven miles long and open to adults, children and well behaved dogs, with a shorter route for those with aged, tired or rather young legs, the walk finishes at one of the local pubs where chip butties are served, it is usually well attended despite often poor weather and a great way to catch up with friends, family and neighbours.

If you have over indulged this Christmas or just want to get outdoors get wrapped up against the elements, grab your wellies/walking boots and go for a walk, don’t forget to take your camera and binoculars you never know what you might see.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year

Happy rambling
