Country Walk around Emmaus Village Carlton (Sat. 28/06/14)

Posted on Updated on

Join us for a country walk around Emmaus Village Carlton.
Emmaus Village Carlton is a local charity that not only offers homeless people the opportunity to help themselves, but to help others. Its idea originates from the birth of the Emmaus Movement in post-war France, advocated by Abbe Pierre.

Walk & Shop: The Emmaus Village Carlton Shops and Bistro are Open
10:00 – 4:30 Tue – Sat. Perfect for low cost second-hand shopping if you need kitchen items (glasses, cutlery, plates, bowls, cute china cups) , books, lamps, picture frames, flower pots and furniture! Also drop off point available – if you are moving out soon from your student accommodation, drop off any unwanted items and prevent them going into landfill.

Haven’t had a chance to make it to the village yet? Well join us for this off road walk, taking the public bridleway around the airfield. Along the way we will be looking at some of the edible and interesting plants in the hedgerows. Once at the village you can buy the classic British special of fish & chips (or Indian or Chinese takeaway).
