Rathern Community Volunteers Get Walking!


Community Walk Leaders joined forces at Rathfern Community Centre to complete a fun filled day of Community Walk Leader Training!

Leaders involved with Rathern Community Regeneration Group, commonly known as R.C.R.G., eagerly anticipated the Community Walk Leader training day that would enable them to make a difference in the local area through organising community walks.

Erica McAuley from R.C.R.G. enthused with confidence about the training day by saying "This course will give me greater confidence in taking out different age groups within my community."

Pauline Welsh, also from R.C.R.G. also added "It was very interesting and enjoyable. I will be more confident now in organising a walk."

Richard Gawith, Training and Development Officer at Walking In Your Community commented "It was great to see a community organisation like Rathfern Social Activity Centre approaching Walking In Your Community to deliver this course for them. With so many trained leaders they are sure to have every success in setting up walking groups to cater for young and old alike."
