This weekend the Park will be busy with running and walking! On Saturday morning the parkrun will set off at 9am from near the athletic stadium. Then on Sunday morning it’s the turn of the junior park runners who meet near the children’s playground in Thornes Park at 9am. Finally it’s the monthly walk for the French Bulldog walking group who are having a charity walk to raise funds for Mind. They meet at 11.30am by the playground. Here’s a photo of the group at Major Barker’s fountain.
Due to the bad weather conditions, the junior park run and the French Bulldog walking group walk are both cancelled. The French Bulldog walk will now be held next Sunday, 16th February.
