All together now!

Forthglade is supporting a community dog walking initiative in Bristol.
 
Elaine Brown, a local Bristol resident and dog owner, launched the campaign The Great Dog Walk Together to encourage people to benefit from more social interaction while walking their canine companions.
 
She said: “We really hope people up and down the country, as well as organizations, are encouraged to create lots of dog walks to bring people together throughout the year as loneliness can affect us all, young and old.  We’re hoping the project will gain real momentum now and truly make a difference, with lots of walks taking place every month up and down the country. Dogs provide such a great way for people to strike up a conversation.”
