Amazingly, 103 people turned up to our first Norton-in-Hales Cricket Club ‘Christmas Walk’ including 21 children. A beautiful cold, frosty & sunny day… The day started with bacon baps and hot beverages served by our willing volunteers at our catering facility at the Club.
Walkers set off meandering through the fields on the 5 mile picturesque walk in our beautiful Shropshire countryside climbing gradually to the first pit stop at our kind hosts hospitality for a port and mince pie break….
The walkers continued onto new pastures and enjoyed winterly views across the Shropshire & Cheshire plains stopping again by a roaring hot fire basket welcomed by another host to replenish with mulled wine and assortments….
The third leg encompassed parkland descending to the finish back into the village. It was good to see lots of happy families sharing conversations in true festive spirit in the Hinds Head public house afterwards! (And the well earned chip butties helped!)
‘Spot the Reindeer’ fun competition answer was – ‘Prancer’ (not many adults got that one!)
Many thanks to everyone that took part and especially to our hosts who looked after us all at the pit stops……
Best seasonal wishes to all our members & supporters, their families and friends. Thanks to all for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you on the family ‘Christmas Walk’ on Sunday 28th December followed by sherry and mince pies….
