We are proud to be supporting this year’s Gillingham Walking Festival and we are a key advertiser in the Festival’s programme, as pictured here. The Festival, which runs from 2nd-10th September 2017, offers a range of walks of varying lengths, all designed to showcase Gillingham’s Royal Forest heritage and to introduce the White Hart Link.
This is a very exciting new initiative, launched in April 2017 and is a 50 mile/80 km walking route which links the five towns of North Dorset – Gillingham, Stalbridge, Sturminster Newton, Blandford Forum and Shaftesbury – using footpaths and quiet lanes.
Many of the Festival walks, which are led by local groups, are free and there’s also a range of other activities occurring during the Festival, including a cinema showing of the film “The Way”, a quiz night and a cheese and wine evening.

PS: the code BOOTS is available to all walkers, not just during the Walking Festival.
