Groups in The Hub

The Fauldhouse Footers

Under usual (pre-covid) circumstances, the group meet on Thursday mornings for health walks weekly whatever the weather. Rendezvous is 10am at The Hub, 10 Main Street. Walks are moderate and suit most abilities. There are around 7 to 10 walkers attending normally and new members are always welcomed along.

The Living Streets Consultation was originally held in 2010 to look at walking in and around the village. Many issues were raised about the state of pathways and much more. For further information see www.livingstreets.org.uk

Living Streets liaised with West Lothian Council officers to take forward issues raised and some public realm improvements had already been made. Well done to everyone who was involved.

The local walking group, the Fauldhouse Footers, was established in April 2009, with support from Rachel Sedman, F&BV CDT’s Development Worker, and partner agencies, including the Put Your West Foot Forward local initiative.

Pre lockdown, this informal group met upstairs in The Hub’s Community Room on Wednesday afternoons.
