Twenty local walkers and dogs enjoyed a gentle stroll on Boxing Day 2014. The event was organised by Helen Gould, one of the Wistaston Community helpers, and the route lasted for ninety minutes over 2.5 miles of the glorious fields in Wistaston.
Beating the bounds of Wistaston will ensure that the public footpaths may be used by the public for another year - this is an old bye-law for all villages and towns.
Helen Gould said, "I re-introduced the walk in memory of Geoff Armitage who passed away this year. Geoff was a stalwart of the local community and organised the Boxing Day walk himself over many years until his health started to deteriorate.
The participants really enjoyed the walk and it added to the local community spirit. We have decided to make this a regular walk each year and all are very welcome, wherever they live".
The Wistaston Community Council also organises the annual Wistaston Fete, Flower and Produce Show, Spring and Christmas Concerts, and the November Fireworks Display. They are keen to attract new helpers to help organise the Wistaston-based events. Please visit http://www.wistastoncommunity.co.uk for further information if you would like to join.
