A packed meeting of nearly 60 people at The Ram’s Head Inn, on Saturday 16th May, celebrated Disley’s successful bid for national accreditation as a walking-friendly destination. Presentations were given by David Rutley MP, Lyme Park Manager Cei Paynton, Chris Prescott (Walkers are Welcome), Tony Jackson (Disley Footpaths Society) and David Kidd (Disley Parish Council) on the positive benefits of walking, the attractions of Disley as a walking centre with excellent public transport links, and the ways in which accreditation can raise the profile of the village and increase tourism to the area.
Following the launch, four guided walks set off, each offering a ‘taster’ of the rich history and stunning landscapes that Disley has to offer. The day ended with a networking meeting with representatives from the two neighbouring Walkers are Welcome towns, New Mills and Bollington, sharing their experiences and exploring plans for joint walking festivals in future years.
Promotional leaflets were sponsored by Northern Rail, and the pubs and the café in the centre of the village all offered special Walkers are Welcome discounts on lunches throughout the afternoon. The weather was kind too!
The application for accreditation had begun a year ago, steered by Disley Footpaths Society with active support from the Parish Council and its officers, and wider support from local businesses and organisations – and from the village as a whole with nearly 400 signatures garnered for the required petition.
