It was a real family affair on our recent sponsored walk. Children and adults enjoyed the warm up led by Kyle at Nuffield Gym in Highfield Park. Staff and members of Nuffield joined volunteers from Samuel Ryder Academy who kindly showed people the route.
Many people were surprised by how attractive the countryside is that is so close to the town. The pretty route took walkers down Nightgale Lane before working their way across to the Earthworks site on Hixberry Lane. For the second year running we enjoyed lovely weather for the sponsored walk.
There was an alternative shorter, fully accessible walk. It was a gentle stroll through beautiful Highfield Park and ending up at our lovely site.
Delightful refreshments were served in the garden where the weather was kind for the second year running. It was a very healthy and enjoyable way to raise money. Thanks to all involved.
