This year’s Borders Memory Walk is taking place in the stunning surroundings of Harestanes Countryside Visitor Centre, located on outskirts of the Scottish Border town of Jedburgh.
Take the shorter 1.5km walk for a gentle stroll around the beautiful grounds which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 6.5km walk will take you further into the park and explore the woodlands. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.
Registration is located by the Visitor Centre where there will be exciting activities to keep you entertained prior to the walk starting. All routes will start and finish close to the Visitor Centre.
Whilst enjoying the fun activities please take the opportunity to take time and think of those you are walking for by completing your 'I'm Walking For' signs and adding a loving memory to our Memory Wall.
