Rotary Bench Trail Walk
This was a led and informative walk, with Sam Stewart and Sue Hart explaining about each bench as the walkers went round the 2.5 mile route, which took them from the Car Park, up the riverside, up the Cuttle Burn Steps, down Kirk Wynd and Allan Street, down Upper Mill Street and Mill Street, across the bridge and up Riverside Drive, up Balmoral Road to Keithbank Mill Car Park, across the pedestrian bridge and back down the Cateran Trail to the finish at Riverside Car Park. The walk took just over an hour.
The walk was followed by a BBQ at the Riverside and all walkers who had a Rotary wristband enjoyed a burger and refreshing drink. There was no charge for this event.
Last years Wellmeadow Walkathon raised enough money for 50 benches to be placed in three separate trails - in Blairgowrie, in Rattray and along the Cateran Trail. The benches are in memory of Sue's son Jordan, who loved the outdoors. These Happy to Chat benches will allow people to sit and talk to each other.
