Walkers are Welcome in Whitchurch, Shropshire
Whitchurch was granted "Walkers are Welcome" status in 2012 and became part of a national network of over 100 small towns and villages. Currently it is the only one in North Shropshire and one of 8 in the county. This means that Whitchurch is doing its bit to make the town and its surrounding footpaths attractive to walkers. The P3 team is contantly helping to maintain and improve the local network of paths. Whitchurch Walkers works with Shropshire and other nearby councils to try to resolve problems and protect the interests of walkers which may be affected by development. Visitors are greeted by welcome boards at the railway station and the town centre car park on the Sandstone Trail and Shropshire Way. There is also a dedicated noticeboard in the town centre which includes a map of the local footpath network.

Since 2013, an annual walking festival has been held over three days in May which has attracted about 200 participants annually and helped to increase membership of local walking groups. Whitchurch Town Council has supported the festival and has taken on the payment of the town's Walkers are Welcome Towns Network subscription. Many local businesses have supported the festival and Walkers are Welcome generally, in various ways including the display of "Walkers are Welcome here" stickers [see below].
