School Walk – the weather may have been damp but our spirits weren’t! 10-04-18

It started off as a dreary morning but the enthusiastic people in our community arrived at the school at 2 pm and set off despite a little drizzle!  However, it dried up during the walk and it was enjoyed by everyone.  Any little stragglers were picked up by car so everything was under control!  Thanks
