WALKING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS  IN SHOTLEY 2019 
 
Otis will be just 14 months old on December 15th.  He has been on most of our health walks and plenty of others too.
 
He has persuaded his mum to buy him an off road buggy for Christmas and take him on our SIX MILE Charity walk.  He is allowing his dad to come as well.
 
HOW LONG WILL HE TAKE FROM OUTSIDE THE BUTT IN PIN MILL TO THE BRISTOL IN SHOTLEY?
 
Look out for the sweepstake forms in local pubs or ask me if you can enter.  Only £2 a guess and you could win £20.

WW 1 U Boat Surrender Commemoration Walk
 

On Sunday 18th November 2018 there was a walk organised by SOS and Harwich Haven Surrender & Sanctuary project with nearly fifty people taking part.. We would like to thank Ganges Museum and St Mary’s Church Shotley for their help and contributions.
The walk was to commemorate the WW1 Surrender of the German U-Boats at Harwich in 1918. The route, involving an introduction about the work of the Ganges lads at the time, descriptions of the surrender at different vantage points, a visual display at the church and a visit to the War Graves, was circular, starting and ending at HMS Ganges Museum. it was just over five miles in length with perfect weather for the occasion. The occasion received some very good reviews.

So thank you to Gary, Geraint and Casper for their hard work so the children can play safely.
