Little Egypt Walk for Charity

Pre-season Training with a Difference

Whose job was it to book the coach then?

We shouldn't really need to be reminded, but sometimes we may lose sight of the fact that Glemsford rests in the middle of some glorious and unique East Anglian countryside that is easily accessible just a short Morris skip from the centre of the village.

Several years ago, members of the Parish Council organised a series of Village Walks to take in the variety of paths and landscapes that can be visited, with little effort, on a Bank Holiday afternoon.

Unfortunately, those walks ended, but the suggestion that members of the Morris Men of Little Egypt might want to walk one section of the local paths, and be sponsored for charity while so doing, was greeted with great enthusiasm.

Under the guidance and organisation of Ruth Stephens, the walk took place on 16 March, in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Although, as can be seen, the weather was not the best it might have been, the group gathered at the Black Lion, went out by way of School Lane and Plum Street, before completing their trek across country and ending up back at the Black Lion for a proper Sunday lunch.

As can also be seen, the group was made up of people from all generations, all dancing persuasions, and some dogs.

An excellent time was enjoyed by all, and the hope is that there will be more of the same.

Keep up please.I thought you said there'd be a following wind 
'ere Mister, why've you got a pair of tights over yer head? Are you worried it might blow away? Blimey Bangsy, you cut the straw a bit short here, didn't you? 
We'll stop here for the Ceremony of the Dog-Mating Well, it started off as a poodle, but it sort of got a bit flattened in translation ...
