PENDLE PUB Walk is set to make a return in September as lockdown measures are set to ease.

The walk, organised by Pendleside Hospice and Burnley Pendleside Rotary Club and raises money for Pendleside Hospice and local charities selected by the rotary club.

Our Pendle Pub Walk is kindly sponsored by Alderson and Horan Funeral Services and takes place around the stunning Pendle countryside using its finest hostelries as way-points.

It is expected that over 2,000 walkers will take part in the 10-mile walk which is made up of a combination of countryside and road-walking.

The walk is a circular route through some of Pendle’s most scenic countryside including Fence, Barley, Roughlee, Blacko, Higherford and Barrowford, with some of the pubs along the route hosting live entertainment.

The walk has two starting points, so walkers can choose to set off from the Village Hall in Barley, with The Pendle Inn as the first pub en-route, or from The Sparrowhawk in Fence.

Registration costs £20 for adults and £10 for children, and the hospice asks that participants gain sponsorship or make a minimum donation of £30 at the time of registering. Pre-registrations will close at 10am on Tuesday 16th June.

The registration fee includes a £5 donation to Rotary Club charities, your t-shirt, sponsor pack including postage and packaging and other event costs such as promotion, administration and processing etc.

Walkers are asked to start from their chosen point between 10am-12noon - if between registering and the event you change your mind about where you would like to start contact you must contact the fundraising department on 01282 440120.
