Success for Leaders at Barnett Demesne!


Barnett Demesne, Belfast hosted a Community Walk Leader training day, Saturday 11th October 2014 for Community Leaders and Volunteers.

This successful training day enables participants to learn the necessary skills needed to lead short, safe and accessible walks with people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Topics covered during this training day included navigation and map reading skills as well as some useful information to set up and run an active walking group.

Maria Gough Volunteer from St Johns GAC commented “As our group is in its infancy all the information we have learned from today will be a brilliant to help us. Overall the course was very enjoyable and the group interacted very well thanks to the leadership of the group by Richard and Alison."
