Hope all are well and looking forward to our communal meet next Saturday.
7 days to go until All Hallows 3 Peak (ish) picnic! Although you might be put off by the words 3 Peaks (!) the ethos of the walk will be to go at the pace of the slowest, have a lot of fun and of course raise some funds for the church. Think of it as a long picnic or a short one. A day for all to enjoy with or without children of all ages, sizes.
Here’s the plan with various opportunities to join in and opt out. We have arranged it in such a way that if you are not sure, you could still give it a shot to do all 3. But if you get tired after one or two, there will be back up for you to opt out and hop into a car. Please bring food to share and enough water. There is another big sponsored walk going on that day so it’ll be cosy, lots of people will be around to talk to and mix with!
For those who are going to do 2 or 3 peaks with flags (walk headed by Andrea/ Burj):
