Wallaby Walking Festival

The Wallaby Walking Festival, held in the Staffordshire Moorlands on October 24 and 25, attracted nearly 200 walkers and raised many thousands of pounds for charities.

The event was deemed such a success the organisers have decided to extend it to three days next year and run it over a weekend - Oct 20, 21 and 22nd.

The man who thought up the idea, Leek businessman John Knox, said: "The walks attracted large numbers of young people. In 2007 the theme will be to get children walking.

"If they get into the walking habit while they are young, it will help them to keep slim and healthy."

The Leek Group of the Ramblers' Association and the Long Distance Walkers' Association will be helping to organise the six walks - from a 25-mile marathon to five-mile family walks.

They plan to hold a competition open to all school pupils in the Moorlands to design the best poster to get children walking.

Full details of the festival are available from Leek Tourist Information Centre at 01538 483471.
