Intervillage Walk 2017
Our walk this year was a repeat of last year's but equally enjoyed I think. We had 31 walkers who set out at 10.10 a.m. from the church car park heading down Hall Lane to travel down the side of the A12 and then over past Sandon Hall and on to Mayes Lane.
A short walk took us to The White House where Pat Eden and helpers welcomed us with tea, drinks and biscuits etc. Again thank you Pat!
Next it was to the nearby T junction and left up Gibcracks, turning left at the top to head down through the fields down to the Ford. From there it was the very tiring uphill plod to the Cricketers Arms at Danbury Common.
minutes later the residual walkers (most of us) set off to climb up the steep
path to St. Mary's Church,
Now we were
on the homeward stretch and the Crown P.H. appeared as a welcoming oasis in the
distance. Sure enough mine host Andrew was open and welcoming. Even
Now, few words of praise are needed here!
The youngest walker who did all 8.5 miles was my granddaughter Imogen Ottley aged 10.However,the very youngest walker was 3 and a half named Eden Birkin, who is Eileen Bartrup's great nephew but he only didthe first half! Only?!
We had 5 accompanying dogs who were very well behaved - better than their owners!
I want to thank all who walked or sponsored or supported this event in any way- sorry to keep bugging you for money every moment every year!!
However, so far we have raised about £300 for this year's charities which are Water Aid and Church Funds but I do hope that we can stretch this up to £600 ultimately.
