Many of you will know Maureen Hart, a stalwart of the Haltwhistle Walking Festival since 2004. Maureen has written a book entitled “More than just a walk – The Story of the Haltwhistle Walking Festival from 2003 to 2020”, which has just been published by Robson Print in Hexham. The book contains an account of the origins of the Festival, and includes memories, anecdotes and pictures from the seventeen years of her involvement, and unstinting service. Others have contributed their tales of the funniest, scariest and wettest walks, and anyone with an interest in the Festival, walking, or the local countryside will find the book entertaining.
Maureen told us that while this has been her first book, it may not be her last. The book has sold well, with only a couple of copies remaining. Maureen would like to thank everyone who has contibuted to the project, and everyone who has bought a copy.
