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.
