Walking up and down hills and mountains.

Darren & Sally
Massive congratulations to Darren & Sally from the Bluebell pub and restaurant in Belchford , our local!

They did the National Three Peak Challenge (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) in 23 hours and 53 mins!

They have raised over £4000 for St Barnabas Hospice Trust in memory of Darrens partner Natalie, who sadly lost her battle with cancer late last year.

Copy and paste link below for their story...


The start! Ben Nevis at 6am
It rained a little at Scafell Pike!
Coming down Snowdon at nearly nearly 6am, 7 minutes to spare!

Countryside Walks & Gardens members.

Also out for a walk a few days ago were the Countryside Walks and Gardens guys. A lovely bunch that meet up and amble around the countryside, all seem to have their specialist subjects on plants, one particular lady was very knowledgable on mushrooms and fungi, pointing out edible specimens along the way.

Andrew and Angela hosted this weeks wander up here at Poachers Hideaway. Andrews local knowledge proved invaluable as he lead them through the countryside over yonder to Fulletby and back- a seven mile loop...

St Andrews Fulletby
A lovely little church at Fulletby was the picnic spot. Refreshments are available in this church, just donate a little money, they even have biscuits!
