Damian Hinds MP recently wrote to the newly formed community group, Walk Alton, offering his support and encouragement at the start of the highlight of the walking year – the month long Alton Walking Festival.

He said: “We’re fortunate to have some of the finest countryside here in East Hampshire, and the annual Alton Walking Festival is an amazing opportunity to discover some of the great walks right on the doorstep of the town. I can only applaud the work of Walk Alton in bringing together local walking organisations to promote this beautiful part of England to residents and visitors alike.”
