It’s good to walk

MENINGITIS Research Foundation is inviting local people to take part in its first ‘Walk the Lough’ event on Sunday, September 16.

The 10-mile walk along the North Down Coastal Path will set out from the Grey’s Point, Helen’s Bay and through to Crawfordsburn Country Park, continuing along the path to Bangor Marina and newly refurbished Pickie Fun Park. There will be a short break for refreshments before heading back to Helen’s Bay.

Sign up now for an enjoyable day out while burning some calories. There is a £5 registration fee and the charity is asking all participants to try and raise a minimum of £35 in sponsorship.
