To introduce a more social family event to our calendar that Wives, Partners and Children may want to take part in Paul & Janet Smalley have organised a short walking rally around the villages of Grimston, Pott Row and Roydon. This will take place on Wednesday 20th July with teams consisting of two adults and up to 2 children leaving the start at one minute intervals. Hopefully it is early enough for some older children to take part as it will start at 6.45pm.

It starts and finishes at Hudson’s Fen Play Area PE32 1BP Map 132 701227 where there is ample free parking. The trail is approx. 1.5 miles long and should take around one hour. To keep you busy there will be 60 questions to answer.

The route uses surfaced footpaths where possible but there are sections on quiet roads where there are no footpaths. It uses a stile to access an unsurfaced footpath and a loose surfaced “trod”. It also crosses roads that may be busy so please take care.

To make it slightly competitive and similar to a clubnight rally it will be timed to the minute and there will be a fail for each incorrect or missed answer. There will be a prize for the winning team.

Once everyone returns to Hudson’s Fen the intention is to then go to the three Horseshoes Pub in Roydon PE32 1AQ Map 132 706228 for a drink and the results – hopefully it will be a nice evening as they have plenty of tables outside.

Entry fee will be £2 per team and any profit will be donated to Hudson’s Fen Play area.

For further info or to register your entry please contact Paul Smalley either by email to paul.smalley@kier.co.uk or Tel 07831 811865.

Very late entries will be accepted so please don’t just turn up on the night as there may not be spare paperwork available.
