January has kicked off with every opportunity to get out and about in Wyre, blow off the cobwebs and keep moving as the winter draws on.
Wyre Council has launched its activities for the great outdoors and there’s a packed agenda with something for everyone.
On Monday, join a team of enthusiastic beach cleaners to give Rossall Beach a tidy-up. It’s a rewarding morning looking after the environment. No need to book for this one – meet at Rossall promenade, Cleveleys near the flag pole at 9.30am.
There’s a long walk planned for January 14 across the fields and lanes of the Wyre Estuary. It starts at 10.30am at River Road and takes in the views of the river as it meanders up stream. You will have to book and it’s £4, £3 for concessions. Call 01995 602125 or email email@example.com.
