Celebrate this year’s national Saint’s day on Thursday 30 November with a FREE gentle ramble, a cuppa and piece of shortbread at Chatelherault Country Park.

Meeting at Chatelherault Visitor Centre at 10:45 am and lasting an hour, the walk is first in a series that will take place in Chatelherault with Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust as part of the Make Your Way arts, heritage and active travel project.

The walk is a perfect way to experience the autumnal sights, sounds and smells of the various woodland paths that follow the Avon Water beyond the Visitor Centre, with an experienced walk leader. Book your FREE place here.

Guided Walk Leader Tracey says, “Chatelherault has a wonderful park with many accessible paths, so is easy for all ages and abilities to explore. I’m really looking forward to showing it off to people who may not realise such a gem lies within easy reach by foot.”

This phase of the Make Your Way project connects the communities of Hamilton, Larkhall and Quarter with Chatelherault, through a series of active travel activities and community workshops that will inform artworks and interpretation designed to promote walking and cycling between the communities and around the country park. It follows the first phase of the project which focussed on the communities of Carluke, Glassford, Lanark, Larkhall and Stonehouse.

Jim Ewing, Senior Team Leader - Bike Town, Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust, says, “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership, and look forward to helping more people in Hamilton, Larkhall and Quarter participate in active travel - whether for leisure or as part of their daily commute.”

The project is being delivered by Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust and icecream architecture, and is supported by Scottish Government Smarter Choices Smarter Places grant, and Heritage Lottery Fund and LEADER supported Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership.

The Make Your Way project is just one of a number of CAVLP supported projects taking place in Chatelherault Country Park with a focus on conserving the heritage, increasing community participation, enabling physical and intellectual access, and providing new training and skills. These include the Planting the Past gardening and environmental volunteering, as well as the recent native woodland regeneration project. Find out more at www.clydeandavonvalley.org.
