Walkers are Welcome is a national organisation with over 100 accredited Walkers are Welcome towns and villages. Why should Shepton Mallet join?
We want all walkers - from all parts of our town and further afield - to feel welcome. Walking has been the salvation of many people over the last year, giving us a sense of wellbeing during difficult times.
Shepton Mallet is perfectly positioned to explore the countryside around us, nestled as it is at the gateway to the Mendip hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty criss-crossed with trails, footpaths and the remains of ancient and medieval industry and old mine workings.
By making walkers feel welcome in our town we help our local economy and community - bringing walkers and visitors to our cafes, restaurants, shops, B&Bs and hotels, and other visitor attractions, and promoting the benefits of physical, health and mental wellbeing through walking.
To become a full member we need to show that people in the town and parish of Shepton Mallet support it.
Please sign our petition and help us reach our target of 1100 signatures!
