People and the DALES

Scargill House, Wharfedale

In March 2011 we held the third of our walking training weekends for community group leaders and volunteers. The training enables those that have already been out on visits through People and the DALES to build up the skills and confidence to bring groups out to the Dales on their own. The three day course comprised walks around the Wharfedale area which offered plenty of opportunity to practise using maps, to think about all the planning and preparation required to run a successful visit to the countryside, as well as exploring the history and landscape of the area.

Group leaders commented:

"I now feel more confident about taking groups out walking"

"They have developed my confidence in leading groups"

"Fantastic YDMT staff – knowledgeable, encouraging, inspiring."
