Plan to be in the car park on Wood mill lane at 11.45am and will meet folk there.
If you can please let us know if you hope to come so we have an idea of numbers and also to ensure we do not set off without anyone.
Come along to our open to all Arts and Kids Crafts workshops 9am-5.30pm.

It’s hard to believe, but 2022 marks 6 years of Touch sharing stories in Southampton. To mark this milestone, on Sunday 22nd May this year we’re holding a very special event, and we’d love you to join us.
Touch is inviting our community to #WalkWithUs along a 7-mile loop through the streets of Southampton, with creative actions, reflections and new friends along the way. The day is a chance to celebrate our stories, raise money so that we can continue to offer Touch events for free – and most importantly, have a lot of fun!
You can find out more and book here: https://www.universe.com/events/walk-with-us-tickets-keynsham-S8VRB6?ref=universe-discover
By booking to come along you aren't committing to join us for the whole day - only as much of it as you want, or can manage. We'll be releasing more details about the route very soon.
Hoping to see you there,
