Families with children in Lowestoft are being urged to join an annual walking festival to help improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
As part of this year's Suffolk Walking Festival, Lowestoft Rising is hosting a series of family-friendly walks around the Lowestoft area.
Three one-mile 'Walk in the Park' events will take place during half-term – two of which are aimed exclusively at primary school children and their families.
These are on Tuesday, May 30, at 10am at Nicholas Everitt Park and on June 1 at 10am at Sparrows Nest Park. The first one mile 'Golden Mile' walk ends at the Lowestoft Museum, with the one-mile walk through Sparrows Nest Park on June 1 ending at the Maritime Museum.
On Wednesday, May 31 another Walk in the Park event will be held at Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve and will be open to children of all ages. In partnership with the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, families can explore the reserve on many self-led trails.
