More than 100 people braved the rain to complete the three mile trek and raised £516 towards Warmingham Church Tower Restoration Fund.

Church warden and secretary Janet Furber said: "It is a good chance for people to get together for a social chat and also enjoy the scenery in the area that some may not have seen before.

"We followed footpaths across the back of the Bears Paw over Church Farm, Hill Top Farm and Old Hough land and everyone managed to complete the three mile walk including dogs having to be lifted over stiles."

Families had fun on the community walk which raised £516 for Warmingham Church Tower Restoration Fund

Organisers wish to thank EDF for supplying refreshments and raffle prizes. Owners were able to buy treat cones for their dogs in aid of the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

Walkers gathered in the Bears Paw afterwards for sandwiches and chips.

"We aim to raise over £200,000 for the restoration of the tower through fundraising, donations and grants," said Janet. "Major masonry work and re-roofing of the tower is required."
