Want to get out walking but need some motivation – especially in these dark evenings? Why not join the Roundwood Walking Eight Week Challenge starting on Wednesday the 2nd of November at 7pm. The walk will begin from the Parish Hall in Roundwood on the footpaths under the street lights for as long as you wish. Children are always welcome with adult supervision. Especially for week 1 during the midterm break, we hope to see lots of children in their Halloween costumes. There may even be some surprises and tasty treats for both kids and well-behaved adults along the way! Do come along and join the fun! This initiative is facilitated by the Roundwood & District Community Council with financial support from Wicklow Sports & Recreation Partnership.
