Walkers are Welcome in Haslemere!
Haslemere is celebrating after being awarded Walkers are Welcome status, in recognition of its reputation as being a great place for walking.
Haslemere launched a campaign earlier this year to get the prestigious honour, which included getting support from the public and well over 500 signatures to demonstrate community backing for the bid. In addition, it had to demonstrate that footpaths are well maintained, together with active promotion of walking and local paths. The town, the very first in Surrey, joins a network of over 100 towns nationwide, which began in 2006 as an idea in the small Pennine town of Hebden Bridge, to show potential visitors that the member towns really are doing their utmost to assure those on foot of a warm welcome.
A new Visit Haslemere leaflet is now available and is a source of useful and interesting information for anyone visting or living in the area and includes a brief history of Haslemere and a handy colour street map of the Haslemere area....Visit Haslemere Leaflet (pdf file)
