Our Christmas walk was another huge success for the Norton in Hales Playing Fields Charity, organised by NIH CC. Despite a fairly large dumping of snow in the early hours of the walk on the 28th December, some 250 walkers braved the elements to negotiate the beautiful walk. Many thanks to the landowners for their assistance, especially Roly Tavernor and Phil Smith for their great hospitality at the refreshment stops. An army of volunteers from the cricket club ensured the walk was safe, followed Covid guidelines and more importanlty ensured everyone enjoyed their walk with plenty of atmosphere, food and drink.

Stay Safe!

Best Wishes
