All month

May is the month for walking! Enjoy and explore your local spaces with a group or on your own. Walk for health or enjoyment: just put on your shoes and get out the door and be sure to join our walkers as they cover the UK's four nations in The Big Walk.

All month

This month increase your awareness of local history in your community. Activities happen across the UK and include trips, library exhibitions and local lectures. It's a great way for groups to highlight local history and for local people to learn about where they live and to meet others from the community.
