Every year the pupils, some of their parents and the teachers at Belmont Primary School, take part in a sponsored walk, which has raised over the years a very considerable sum of money for various charities, ourselves included.
The route leads from the School up to the Winter Hill summit, then across the moorland past Smithills Shooting Hut to Scout Road, and after dropping down to Horrocks Fold, back to the School via Longworth Clough
Every year we do our best to be in a position to ’watch over’ the walk, and meet the children at various stages along the route with at least one of our team vehicles.
Today Team Call Out list member Dave Cook walked alongside all taking part for the entire route.
Providing a watchful eye on the 100 plus contingent of pupils, parents and teachers meanwhile, in unseasonable wet, windy and misty conditions across Winter Hill were team Call List members Ken Oakes, David Crawford, John Dickinson, Diane Blakeley, Martin Battersby and Phil Crook who followed the walkers along the route in our Mountain Rescue Land Rover Ambulance BM1 and BM3 vehicles.
