Support Charlbury's 'Walkers are Welcome' bid

Charlbury is applying for membership of Walkers are Welcome, a national scheme for towns and villages that welcome walkers.

We hope to attract more visitors to the town, securing a better future for Charlbury's shops, pubs and other businesses; to ensure that Charlbury's footpaths are clear and well-maintained; and to help others share in this beautiful place. We would be the only WaW town in Oxfordshire and the only one in the eastern Cotswolds.

An 11-strong steering group has been meeting regularly since the autumn to plan our scheme and how we intend to attract walkers. Charlbury Town Council has pledged its support.

But we need to show support from local people too - and this is where you can help! The Walkers are Welcome national committee have asked us for 50 signatures... but Charlbury being what it is, we think we can manage a few more than that.

If you support our aims, please do click one of the following links:

You'll need to be logged into the Charlbury Website to sign. You're not committing yourself to anything - just showing support for Charlbury as a walking town.

Copies of the sign-up sheet will also be available around Charlbury in due course.
