Over the last four years Walking Support has been exhibiting at the annual Outdoors Show.
In 2009 the show was at the NEC in Birmingham and Walking Support manned the stand on their own on behalf od Walking Support and the Jedburgh Events Forum.
In 2010 the show was at the NEC in Birmingham and Walking Support in collaboration with Scottish Borders Council and Jedburgh Events Forum promoted both walking and cycling. This was manned by a joint team from Walking Support and Scottish Borders Council.
In 2011 the show was at Excel in London and Walking Support in collaboration with Scottish Borders Council and Jedburgh Events Forum promoted both walking and cycling for a second occasion. This was manned by a joint team from Walking Support and Scottish Borders Council.
In 2012 the show was again at Excel in London and the focus of the stand was St Cuthbert's Way and Border Cycling. The stand was funded through Coucnil and European Project monies and Walking Support was invited to be a permenant member of the exibiting team.

All four years have been very successful event with hundreds coming onto the stand and picking up information on walking around the Scottish Borders as well as more data on the services that Walking Support offers to walkers.
