Have fun and support the Bell Appeal

Would anyone be interested in taking part in a 10 mile sponsored walk in the Cotswolds?

“The Cotswold Way in a Day” sponsored walk takes place on Sunday June 3rd and is organised by Gloucester Kingsholm Rotarians.  The Way is 100 miles long and you can choose any one of 10 legs on which to do your 10 mile walk.  Walkers choose their own charity and the Newnham Bells Appeal will pay your £10 entry fee if you can raise £150 or more for us.   Want to help another charity as well?  No problem.

Entrants will be asked to arrive with some spare places in their car so that the Rotary Club can organise lift sharing in order to get walkers back from their finishing point.  The Rotary Club provides walk leaders and full safety back-up.

Everyone gathers at the Hatherley Manor hotel near Gloucester, where you can pre-order an optional breakfast before you start. There will be certificates at the end and a Pig Roast supper you can also pre-order.

If this interests you please contact Mike Bacon asap and before the end of April if at all possible. 01594 516508, mike.bacon@btinternet.com. We need at least four participants to register for this.

Look out for more enjoyable events coming up this summer, including
• The Newnham Live Music Festival in June,
• A Midsummer’s Eve Picnic and Music at Newnham House during the Open Garden’s weekend – June 23rd
• A ‘tour and tea’ at the home and garden of Lady Bathurst our patron – Cirencester Park.  Date to be arranged
