Everyone had a lovely walk this morning on the traditional annual Bridgend Walk to Harrop Wood to see the bluebells. The beautiful purple mist is really reaching its peak now and is a stunning sight.
In order for us to be compliant with UK law and Covid guidelines, we are still required to limit the number of people in our walking groups. This is to keep everyone safe and ensures they have as an enjoyable and worry-free time as possible. To make this work we have a booking system on our website to ensure the places are fairly allocated. To book your place on a future walk, please go to www.bridgendcentre.org.uk and click on our calendar.
If you require any assistance with booking, please do give us a call and we will talk you through it or do it over the phone for you. Thank you for your support and understanding during these unusual times.
Thank you so much to the Bollington Harriers for choosing the Bridgend Centre as the chosen charity for their ‘Bollington Harriers’ White Nancy Challenge’.
Between 10th and 30th April, 42 runners from the Bollington Harriers took up the gauntlet to run from the bottom of Grimshaw Lane to the top of White Nancy in the fastest time possible. Many did this multiple times! This extraordinary feat involved some serious blood sweat and tears and plenty of records were broken this year.
It isn’t too late to acknowledge this brilliant achievement and support the Bridgend Centre at the same time by donating to the event’s Just Giving page. Every penny will go towards the running of our Centre and working to ensure it stays at the heart of our community. Thank you so much to everyone involved!
We were thrilled on Monday when our charity shop re-opened for the first time in over three months, following the easing of the national lockdown.
Its a busy time so far this week with lots of customers and people bringing their donations to us. If you would like to make an appointment, please go to the Charity Shop page on this website and book your slot.
The committee for the walking festival met last week and agreed the dates for this year’s festival – 24th September to 3rd October. A definite date for your diary if you like walking!
