 National Walking/ Cycling Month

 1st-31st May National Walking Month is an initiative to get people walking. It is said that we now walk less than we did 20 years ago. So to combat pollution, congestion and many other nasty things National Walking month encourages people to go for a stroll. This year Living Streets say you should take photos and 'Rate Your Walk' http://www.livingstreets.org.uk/

 Local Community History Month

 1st - 31st May The aim of the month is to increase awareness of local history, promote history in general to the local community and encourage all members of the community to participate.

Activities happen across the UK and include trips, library exhibitions and local lectures.  It is a great way for groups to highlight local history and for local people to get involved. See what is happening in your area via the History.org.uk website.
