A “TRAMPER Trek” in the Forest of Bowland, organised by Ribble Valley Borough Council’s Stepping Out group, was a great success despite the rain.

The four-mile route used paths tcreated by Lancashire County Council’s countryside service.

Stepping Out co-ordinator Dominic Cooper said: “Some of Ribble Valley’s most dramatic and rugged countryside is now accessible to residents with limited mobility thanks to the Tramper Treks, which are proving extremely popular.”

Simon O’Rourke, of Clitheroe Shopmobility, who provides the electric-powered Tramper vehicles for the scheme and supports the monthly walks said: “It’s a great way of encouraging people to access the countryside. We have been organising these walks for people with limited mobility for over a year and it’s nice to see how well supported they are. The buggies are available for people to join specific walks for a small donation.”
