Residents are being encouraged to put their best foot forward and join Wellingborough Council for the Waendel Walk, which will take place from Friday 10 - Sunday 12 May.

Registration is now open for the international walking event, which is celebrating its 40th birthday this year. Wellingborough is the only town in England to host the International Marching League event, which attracts people from across the globe, from as far as Australia and America.

Chair of the Waendel Walk Working Party, Cllr Malcolm Waters, said: “We are delighted to be working with our partners to deliver the Waendel Walk once again. This is a poignant event in Wellingborough’s calendar which encourages residents to get outside and explore the borough. I’d encourage everyone to sign up and join us for this annual event.”

Leader of the Borough Council of Wellingborough, Cllr Martin Griffiths, said: “We are delighted to be working with Parkwood Leisure to deliver the 40th Waendel Walk. This is a great event that will give the team a real insight into the community spirit residents have across Wellingborough.”

This year’s event will feature improved routes, providing road and field courses for everyone in the local community, as well as events and entertainment for all the family throughout the weekend. All walks start and finish at Castle Theatre.
