WGC100 Rotary Charity Walk
Walk the new Centenary Walk around Welwyn Garden City and explore three Trust nature reserves along the route...
To celebrate the WGC Centenary and raise funds for local charities, Welwyn and Hatfield Rotary have organised a charity walk around the city. The 20km walk is marked with specially designed centenary waymarkers on the trail itself, making it easy to follow with or without a map. There is also a shorter 10km route option. Map and details can be found here.
We will have staff and volunteers at Stanborough Lakes to cheer off walkers as they depart and greet them on their return. Stanborough Reedbed Nature Reserve is hidden gem at the top of Stanborough Lakes, only a a short detour from the main walk and worth exploring. The centenary walk then passes very close to our beautiful Lemsford Springs Nature Reserve, a haven for wading birds. The half-way point is at Tewinbury, where we will have scopes set up in our bird hide. Walkers can pop in to view the wildfowl on the water and discover this beautiful small wetland nature reserve.
Registration for the walk is through the Rotary website. The Rotary are keen for walkers to also raise funds for their own local charities. If you would like fundraise for Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, you can register on JustGiving or download and print off the sponsorship form below.
This is an event organised and led by Welwyn and Hatfield Rotary.
