Weather won’t stop the Welwyn Hatfield Rotary Walk

THE weather forecast may be less than brilliant – but don’t let that put you off taking part in the Welwyn Hatfield Rotary Walk, tomorrow (Sunday).

Entries have flooded in for this year’s annual sponsored walk which is, as ever, being backed by the Welwyn Hatfield Times.

And the current outlook for tomorrow may indicate rain, but the event will be far from a damp squib.

You’ll still be able to marvel at the bluebells in full bloom along the route – one of the main reasons the event has been brought forward from its traditional spot on the second Sunday in May.

And the dozens already signed up will be helping to raise thousands of pounds for good causes.

Event spokesman John Hopley said: “Let’s make it a bumper year, get out your walking shoes, enjoy a stroll in our wonderful local countryside and help hard-pressed local charities who will be only too grateful for your support.”

The walk starts and finishes at Campus West car park, WGC.
