Through the seasons – come rain or shine, dog or no dog – Armley Walkies has met every Sunday morning.

They have been adopted by Bramley-based charity BARCA Leeds, no pun intended, as part of their Better Together Project and an excellent example of a community health walk.

Since forming, friends have been made, human and canine and members have been involved in other community ventures such as litter picks and dog shows, and had a Christmas Jumper walkies on Christmas Eve.

A regular of Walkies said:

“These people have turned out to be some of the most brilliant friends I’ve had in ages. We’re a total mish-mash of awesomeness and I think that’s why it works so well.”
