Neston & District Christian Aid’s traditional sponsored walk took place on March 16th. In 2018 wet weather made part of the walk very muddy, so this year we reccied it the day before, and advised a short diversion (which also avoided the need to watch out for golf balls!) and returned along Parkgate Parade to avoid the flood by the old baths.
During the night before, heavy rain made sure even the Wirral Way had plenty of puddles, and the flood by the old baths was even larger. A group of 28 hardy souls and several dogs battled through strong winds.
From Little Neston, walkers included Hazel and Gillian Blundell, Brenda Cunnington, Alison Ryall, Jean Turner, Eileen and Rob Ward, Lyn Worrall and Peter Wright.
Sponsorship money is still coming in. Thanks to Rev Hilary Smith for letting us use the URC hall, despite our muddy boots, to Margaret Heibel and Lynne Vaughan for refreshments, to all those who walked and to generous sponsors!
