A HASTINGS principal put her best foot forward last Saturday (March 29) and launched the Ore Trails, a new series of guided walks designed to encourage Ore villagers to get active.
Theresa Phillips, principal of Hastings Academy in Ore, local rambling leaders and councillors walked the Ore Trails route behind the school which has been cleared of brambles and branches and planted with spring bulbs and wildflowers.
Aubrey Ingleton, of Ore in Bloom, is urging locals to use the new trails to get fit and discover the countryside.
He said: “We are blessed with some of the most beautiful coastal scenery and far reaching views right on our doorstep.
“What could be a nicer way to keep fit than exploring our beautiful countryside.”
The three guided walks range from easy to challenging and have been mapped in colour leaflets detailing local points of interest and beauty spots.
Each trail is looped and lasts between 45 minutes and three hours, and information about the routes, as well as advice on how to keep fit, is provided along the way.
People are encouraged to join walk leaders on Saturday, April 12, 10am, at Ore Community Centre.
The cafe will be open and representatives from the land trust, the health improvement partnership, and conservation volunteers, will be on hand with information.
