Hillstreet Shopping Centre is celebrating the extra-long weekend this Spring Bank with some good old fashioned family fun.
People can learn about the trees that clean our air and brighten our environment on a leisurely walk around Middlesbrough’s beck valleys.
Boro Backs Ranger Barry Jobson is leading the five-mile circular walk which starts at Nature’s World, off Ladgate Lane, at 10:30am on Friday, November 4.
The walk takes in Marton West Beck as well as the beautiful Avenue of Trees in Acklam.
Barry said: “Thanks to the forward thinking of farmers and the previous owners of Acklam Hall we have a wonderful collection of trees, both native and imported, that provide us with wonderful views, as well as providing homes for wildlife.
“As well as looking good, the trees around us clean our air, can provide us with food and fuel, and as they can grow for hundreds of years, they can give us a glimpse into the history of our local landscape.”
Walkers are advised to bring a snack and drink and wear outdoor clothing and walking boots as paths are uneven and muddy in places.
