Short walks in Sandiacre

FOUR short walks have been organised as part of a green initiative being run by Marks and Spencers and Groundwork Derby and Derbyshire.

The Making Sandiacre Greener project has been funded by the charge made to Marks and Spencers customers for carrier bags.

The first of the four walks is on Sunday January 23 at 10am starting from Sandiacre Library, Doncaster Avenue.

Marion Farrell, from Groundwork Derby and Derbyshire, said: “Two of the walks are on Sunday and two on Friday.

“All of the walks are short and will take approximately one hour to complete.

“Come in sturdy footwear and warm clothes. ”

Other walks will take place on Friday January 28, Sunday January 30 and Friday February 4.

Sunday walks start at 10am and Friday walks begin at 10.15am.
