Chorley Ramblers have designed a “Scramblers” programme of Sunday afternoon walks for children and teenagers and their families.

The aim is to encourage younger people to enjoy the countryside and develop a love of walking.

The programme kicks off at 2pm on Sunday, February 23 with a walk from the visitors’ centre at Yarrow Valley Country Park, Birkacre.

Expect to hunt for a cascading weir, shy snowdrops and dancing grebes. To find out more, call Barbara on 01257 270348 or visit
