I just wanted to let you know about a free walking tour that I'm holding next weekend in Maylands that I'm really excited about! It's part of an international event that is happening in over 75 countries on the first weekend in May - so, New York, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Singapore and now Maylands!

What Makes Maylands? free walking tour at 2pm on Saturday 4th May.

Jane's Walk is an international event that takes place annually on the first weekend of May. The walk celebrates the legacy of urban activist and writer Jane Jacob's who championed the contributions that local residents make to creating their own communities. This year, Maylands will join over 75 other cities in hosting its own Jane's Walk. All of the walks are free and people are encouraged to turn up and join in the conversation.
