JOHN BARON'S FUN WALK

Yet another stupendous Charity Fun Walk took place at Barleylands, Great Burstead  last Sunday - our fourteenth year.  Our MP John Baron, as always, hosted the annual charity walk and more than 2,000 enthusiastic folk tackled the course, some dressed in amazing costumes.
Peter, Sam & Janet - fellow marshals

Each year the Fun Walk attracts more people and, as a marshal this year (instead of walking the course), I had the pleasure of meeting most of those who managed to get to almost the furthest Cray Hill point - and all were cheerful and were looking forward to collecting their medals later in the day.  We certainly have  some very fit people of all ages in this part of Essex! 

We are indebted to our superb sponsors, firms and charity personnel who came along, and of course, our wonderful walkers and their families for making this, our 14th Fun Walk so memorable.  An update on funds raised will follow when known.
