Bay Walk Leaders
Hayley Tantner – Community Action Development Officer at
Torbay Community Development Trust – is looking to recruit new Bay Walk Leaders.
If you’re interested, or know of anyone that would be interested in setting up a weekly walk, there is training available on Monday 20th August at 11 Castle Road, Torquay TQ1 3BB (time to be confirmed). Everyone must register to attend the training through Hayley herself by phoning 07703 715219, 01803 212638, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. ‘After the initial training ,’ she says, ‘there will be ongoing support with the walks that are set up.’
Hayley is am interested in new walks being set up that are slow and short so that they are more easily accessible. Some of her current walks are quite fast paced and lengthy, not always suitable for everyone. ‘However,’ she adds, ‘anyone wanting to set up any kind of walk of any type will be greatly received.’
Canoes Needed, too!
Hayley will be setting across Torbay on a strange vehicle this September (Sunday 2nd September)…a seabike. ‘I will literally be cycling across the waters of Torbay,’ she tells us, ‘alongside Councillor Robert Excell on his own seaworthy bicycle.’
‘However,’ Hayley goes on, ‘this madness is for a good cause. I’m raising money and awareness for Ourbus Torbay, the community bus service set up by Torbay Community Development Trust and Ageing Well Torbay.’
Hayley has almost everything she needs to create a seabike, except for two things – a pair of canoes. If anyone has any canoes they’re willing to part with permanently (as they’d become part of the seabike) please let her me know ASAP.
If you’d like to support her in a different way, please donate towards her voyage, by visiting Hayley’s donation page on Chuffed.org: https://ageingwelltorbay.us18.list-manage.com/track/click?u=b84fca88864ba7a1d240c45d7&id=921a044ae4&e=50c99de599
