I haven’t seen many organised walks around town. There are always a few people walking together, but rarely an event publicised as open to the public. So when one comes along, it’s time to get on-board. When: Saturday 12 October, starting at 8am. Where: Starts at Cooke Park near the Elvis statue. The local Landcare group has organised a 2km walk. It’s part of the Pink Up Parkes fundraiser (for the McGrath Foundation Pink October campaign). Presumably, Elvis will be contributing to the theme. Then the walk heads east along Clarinda Street until (co-incidentally?) East Street. That’s nearly half way. Then, heads south down East Street, across the railway line and turns into PAC Park. Breakfast will be on offer at the other end of PAC Park, plus some great information workshops. More details on the Landcare site and the Facebook page. Make sure you book so they have an idea of numbers.
