The distance is approximately 14 miles. We intend to start at 9am from the footpath near to the Strood. There will be several scheduled stops to take on refreshment and supplies.
So far four members of the Committee have taken up the challenge and we would be happy to welcome as many people as possible to participate. Please call Keith Banks on 735004 for more details and sponsorship forms. If you can’t manage the walk, you are welcome to to sponsor one of the committee.
If you can’t manage the entire 14 miles, join us for part of the walk, even if its just between The Coast and The Victory!! Dogs also welcome.
It’s a great opportunity to get some exercise, enjoy our beautiful countryside, to chat with friends and neighbours and raise some money for a good cause.
