Entries flooding in for this year’s Welwyn Hatfield Rotary Walk

ENTRIES are flooding in for this year’s Rotary Walk.

Last week saw the first distribution of the official poster and entry leaflet and before the ink was dry Rotary already had its first entries for the walk.

Many of last year’s walkers have already sent their entry forms in and said they are raring to go again this year.

Last year, nearly 400 people took part in the walk and many of them raised “large sums” for their chosen charitable causes.

There were also many people who came along, paid their entry fee and just walked without seeking sponsorship.

All the entry fees also go to charitable causes.

Organiser John Hopley told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “Both types of walkers are welcome to join in.

“The more the merrier.

“This year we are hoping that more than 500 people will rise to the challenge and complete either the long or short route.

“The Rotary Walk is not difficult and takes place along wide easy footpaths in pleasant and varied countryside around the Ayots and Brocket Hall.”

Welwyn Hatfield mayor Howard Morgan will officially start the walk at 8.30am on Sunday, May 8.

The start and finish is at the Campus West car park, in Welwyn Garden City.

All walkers should start by 10.30am and aim to finish before 3.30pm.

Entry forms can be obtained from the WHT offices, or from the website at www.welwynhatfieldrotarywalk.org.uk or by emailing info@welwynhatfieldrotarywalk.org.uk
