WANTED!!

WALKERS to join in with the WALKING WITH FRIENDS planned to celebrate the Queen's 'real' Birthday on Thursday 21st April, 2016.

To celebrate the 90th Birthday of our Queen on the actual day — 21st April — (leaving the Official Birthday in June free for you to join in the national celebrations), we are having a Walk around Alton, visiting as many of our local Residences for the Elderly as wish to be involved.

Walkers can choose their starting point and join anywhere along the route, walking as much or as little
as they wish.

Starting from either Marlfield, Borovere or Brendoncare, 11am, culminating at the Alton Assembly Rooms to share a celebratory birthday cake the walks will visit many of Alton's Residential Homes gathering other Walkers on the way.

For further information please contact Kate Dando on 01420 83514 kaddando@gmail.com

Don't miss this unique opportunity to celebrate with friends on this special day!
