The days are getting longer – so it's time to get out and start enjoying the great outdoors.

Tameside has a huge variety of countryside to enjoy, from the meadows and woods of the southern valleys to the high open moorland above Stalybridge.

The walking programme kicks off on Sunday, May 5 with a two-hour programme run by Kids in the Environment (KITE).

This is a chance to join in some fun-filled activities exploring the countryside, meeting at 10am at Park Bridge Heritage Centre, Park Bridge, The Stables, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 8AQ.

The free event is suitable for children aged seven to 12-years-old and lasts for two hours.

For the more intrepid among you, there’s the half-marathon on Sunday, July 7.

Leaflets are available from Tameside's visitor centres at the Park Bridge Heritage Centre, the Stables, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 8AQ and Lymefield Visitor Centre, off Lower Market Street, Broadbottom, SK14 6AG.

They can also be found at Werneth Low Country Park, Higham Lane, Hyde SK14 5LR. Alternatively, ring 0161 3309613 or visit www.tameside.gov.uk/countryside
