A SERIES of royal health walks have been organised by Horsham District Council to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The new programme of Horsham District Council’s popular health walks scheme has been published on the Council’s health walks website and this includes a number of walks over the Easter weekend.

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is also in this quarter (March to June) of the programme so a number of royal walks have been arranged.

The first of these walks starts off from Monarch’s Way and there will be six of these 10 mile linear walks between Rowlands Castle and Shoreham Harbour starting on May 4 2012 and ending on June 25 2012.

There will be three circular walks on the celebration weekend and a number of royal walks ending in a walk on Sunday June 4 from Horsham with a picnic in the Community Garden in Horsham Park afterwards.

Sue Rogers, Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for a Safer and Healthier District, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the royal event and work on that healthy regime.

“I know Horsham District’s health walks have fostered some close friendships among attendees and what better way to mark the occasion.”
