The Nelson’s Journey Walk of Smiles is a FAMILY FUN DAY and a special occasion to get together with your family and friends. Many families come to remember and walk in memory of a special person who has died or to think of those people who are grieving. Join us and other families to walk in memory of someone special who has died or those grieving, and to support Nelson’s Journey.
After a beautiful country side walk with routes of 2 and 2.5 miles (the shorter route being pushchair friendly) we have a lovely fun filled afternoon
planned with refreshments, BBQ, fete style games, arts & crafts & dog show. There’s activities for all ages as well as an opportunity to decorate a remembering rock to remember the person who died. There is a lovely atmosphere of togetherness at this event.
