The Great Leesfield Sponsored Parish Boundary Walk

Well done everybody who took part in the walk on the 13th September, and many thanks to all who helped to make it such a success by acting as marshals, encouraging others to join in, and most of all checking for cows!

71 people took part in total, 45 adults & 26 children, ranging from Annie who is only just 4 years old to Margaret at 82.

There were scouts, guides, cubs & beavers, children and parents from all 3 schools & Sunday schools, bellringers, Mothers Union members, PCC members and many more!

26 adults including Margaret and several at or rapidly approaching 70 completed the whole walk, together with 11 children including two 6 year olds & one 8 year old. Very well done especially to Aidan, Declan & Jack. When Kingsley sent me the list of beavers, cubs and scouts registered to walk I was amazed to see that three boys so young intended to do the whole route and didn’t really think they could do it.

I think everybody had a good time, and many saw parts of the Parish which they had not visited before or hadn’t been to for several years. We will do it again, hopefully before the summer holidays this year, and are looking at an alternative route, (Margaret’s walk), which will be suitable for those who are good walkers but prefer to avoid steps and fields.

We don’t have a final total for the amount raised as yet, but will let you know as soon as we do.

There are some photos available to look at in St. Thomas’ Church, and there will also be a few on the Parish website. Alternatively Paul could send you some electronically if you  prefer.
