Laing: i weekend December 2021
"They say there is a bar for each day of the year in York. They come in all shapes and sizes and there is even a walking tour, which traces their history, some dating back to the 16th century. Keith Martin will share his passion for York's oldest pubs in return for a donation to Keep Your Pet a charity which helps people keep their animals at difficult times"
money raised from the walks will support Keep
a charity run by Age Uk York with links to RSPCA York & District.
This project has been established to help older people look after
their pets at times of health or other difficulties.
Tours run regularly
