2023 AGM
Our AGM will take place on Monday 3rd July 2023 at Coalbrookdale Community Centre at 4.30pm and via video conferencing. If you wish to attend, please contact lynn.ironbridgewalking@outlook.com

We are really proud of what the Festival offers and that all of our walks are free. We would love to keep it this way. Here are some ways that you can help to promote and sustain our Festival Experience for you to enjoy for many years to come:

  • Let us know the things you enjoy about the Festival and we can use your comments on future promotion on any of our sites. You can drop us an email or contact us via Facebook or Twitter by clicking on the icons.
  • Fill in our new post Festival Questionnaire which we will send out via email.
  • Share with us your photographs via any of our social media accounts as we would love to use them in future publicity including on our website. We would love a gallery of our 2023 Festival and pictures of dogs to join Daisy on her gallery too.
  • Give a small donation, by using the bank transfer details detailed on each of our pages, or by the collection tins that our walk leaders have available on each walk. We appreciate times are really challenging at the moment, but even a small donation will help.

It is an end of an era, as the wonderful Neil Cartman steps down as our Chair. Under Neil’s leadership the Festival has grown and has gained a fantastic reputation not only locally but also far and wide. We will miss him loads but his legacy will continue.

A new Chair will be appointed at the AGM - if you wish to take up this role, please contact either Lynn on the email above or n.cartman@btinternet.com by CoP on 30th June 2023.
