On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Bristol

This is a brilliant, family-friendly route with lots of activities to keep the little ones entertained. It’s an area with a fascinating history too so there’s also plenty to keep the adult minds engaged as well!

In 1809, Bristol was transformed by the opening of the Floating Harbour. 80 acres of tidal river was impounded to allow visiting ships to remain afloat all the time. Over the next two centuries the Harbour grew into a busy commercial port until it closed in 1975. Since then, it has been regenerated – making for a modern twist on the more traditional coastal walks!

We will be rounding the walk off with a gathering at the end, so you can have a well deserved relax and put your feet up!

Coast Along for WaterAid is the perfect way to help your children discover and learn exciting new things while having lots of fun. To help your children play, learn and develop there will also be a variety of games to take part in as you walk and competitions to enter, so sign up today for a fun day out for all the family!
