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, and then back to the School.
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 eighty plus contingent of pupils, parents and teachers meanwhile, in todays wonderfully sunny and warm weather were team Call List members Michael Eddleston and John Dickinson in our Land Rover BM1, Chris Tennant and Phil Crook in Land Rover BM4 and Mike Marsh and Ged Clarke in Land Rover BM3 who followed the walkers along their route.
