Event description

Description

A gentle walk of 1km, 2km or 3km (your choice) on a circular route around Glossop's beautiful Manor Park to help raise awareness of Dementia. Walk for a friend or family member, walk to raise money for research or walk for yourself.

Please bring your Eventbrite ticket(s) with you on the day. We will start all our Walkers off together at 10.30am so leave time to sign in. We'll be ready and waiting by 10am.

FAQs

I would like to raise money for Dementia. How can I do that?

The simplest modern way is to open a JustGiving page and get your friends to sponsor you through that. You can do that at https://www.justgiving.com/ . The traditional method is to collect sponsors on a printed sponsor form and we can send you a Glossop Memory Walk form by email if you use the email below to contact us. When you collect the money just pay it into your local Post Office or high street bank.

I would like to bring friends/family members with me, what should I do?

You can register up to 10 people for the Walk but please be sure they will attend as we have set a maximum number of Walkers and we wouldn't want to waste any places.

Where will we find you in the park?

We will start and finish just inside the main gates which are on Manor Park Road. Follow the signs for Toilets and you will see us.

Is the Memory Walk wheelchair and pushchair friendly?

The circular route is entirely on made paths although there is a short, sharp hill where wheelchair users may need a helping hand; which we will provide.

Will we be able to get a brew in the park?

We hope to be providing a cup of tea and a bun for Walkers in return for a donation but we don't mind if you bring a flask. We are working on a partnership with a local pub so that everyone can go for a celebratory drink when we've finished. We'll let you know!

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Bus number 390 stops outside the park main gates and busses 69B, 236, 237 and 393 stop on the A57; Glossop Railway Station is a 5 minute walk from the park's Corn Street entrance; there are plenty of options for securely parking a bicycle in the park; Manor Park has a large car park on Corn Street off the A57 but we do urge you to avoid this option and at least car share.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

For details ring Jayne or Vicky on 07590 839421 or email jayne.owen@bewellglossop.co.uk or use @bewellglossop on Twitter to make contact.

Can I bring my dog?

Absolutely, dogs are part of the family too, but they will have to stay on a short lead the whole time you are involved in the Walk, please. And don't forget a supply of poo bags.
