Some charities that have benefitted from the walk
Here are some comments from last years walk...
I wanted to say how well yesterday’s mammoth event organised was and to thank every single person involved. I only walked the final stretch, but every marshal was cheerful, encouraging, interested in the charity supported and how far we had come despite the fact that they must have been very cold in comparison with the walkers. Each of them knew their little stretch and its potential hazards, especially after the rain, and so many of them, one on nearly every stile.
Thank you to all your volunteers, we really had a lovely walk yesterday despite the weather and we would like to congratulate you on how well it was organised.
Thank you so much for organising such a brilliant event, what an enormous amount of work it took, special thanks for the new route cutting through Mottisfont and avoiding Squab Wood. Phew!
One thought for next year. Many of us were looking for somewhere we could sit down for a lunch break along the way - well before we made it to Mottisfont lovely picnic area. I am not sure where along the route that might have been possible, but it's something to think about.
I did the 16-mile walk from Wherwell to Romsey, this was the first time that I have done this walk, I really enjoyed it.
The positives were:- The Marshalls and directions were superb, nobody could possibly get lost.
The negatives were:-Too many styles and the small metal bridge should have had a supportive rope either side, as the bridge was very narrow to cross!
I think my grandson was probably the youngest walker at three, four at Christmas. He had to join us at the last minute and Abbi spoke to one of the registration staff about it. By the time I arrived to register, all his paperwork was done and the staff immediately identified us as the group with the extra member. Isaac loved it all, riding on the bus, a day out with his whole family, muddy puddles to soak his brand new boots in, cows and pigs to moo and grunt at... and so proud of his medal which he is wearing to nursery this morning. So please pass on my gratitude to every single person involved!
