    I am disabled and my husband my fulltime carer. We have 4 beautiful dogs and are looking for walks we can go on. I use an electric scooter whilst walking the dogs, so it would be awesome to find walks where my husband and I, plus our 4 dogs can go. We would be grateful to find out more information if possible as to where we can go? We have a car, so travelling isn't a problem as long as its around the Lancashire area. Thank you.
    Mrs Janette Emlay
