Annual Memorial Walk

Our first Memorial Walk took place in August 2015, when we experienced monsoon conditions (no exaggeration) and 2018 resulted in the walk having to be cancelled as a result of the intense heat during the summer months; however whatever the weather has in store for us in 2019 EVERYONE is warmly invited to join us on our annual memorial walk to celebrate the lives of two wonderful young men and brothers - Chris and Steve Phillips. This is a way for the whole community to come together, enjoy a walk with old friends and maybe even make some new ones. It is also an opportunity to take time out with family and friends, to remember all those we have lost and to reminisce about happier times.
A £5-00 donation from all adults (children free) would be gratefully received from everyone taking part in the walk. Refreshments and homemade cakes will be available in the Village Hall at the end of the walk. For those who prefer something more substantial, hotdogs and burgers will be available at The Woolpack, for a small donation to our charity (Thanks to The Woolpack for providing this). And there will also be a raffle, with some great prizes. All money raised will be donated to The Heart of Weston, whose aim is to help protect those living in our local community.
Details of the walk:
we will do a five and a half mile walk along the canal to Salt, then through the village past the Holly Bush Inn. We will go across a field and along a pleasant track to Brick Kiln Lane. We will return to Salt via another grassy path passing Keepers Cottage, then back to Weston along the canal. Dogs are welcome on the walk but we ask they are kept on a lead at all times. This walk goes through some very pretty countryside and is safe as there are no major roads to cross.
If you are unable to make the walk you are still very welcome to join us for refreshments at the Village Hall from approx 3-00pm or the BBQ at The Woolpack from 5-00pm.
If you would like any further details, please contact Julie Gair, on 07906 - 939251.
We look forward to seeing you all.
