Sponsored Walk – Sat 6th Oct

Posted on 24/09/2012 by lizzie

The time has come to look out your walking boots and join us in raising funds for the School by taking part in the sponsored walk.

This will take place on Saturday 6th October, meeting at Flotterstone Rangers’ Centre in the Pentland Hills at 10am.   There are two routes on offer – one easier one for the younger children and families, and one slightly more challenging route for the older children. The shorter route will take around an hour to complete and will be followed by parachute games and activities in the picnic area.  The more challenging route will take around 2 1/2 hours and is very steep in places.

Please speak to Lizzie Aylett  if you need a lift or directions.

The walk/barbecue will be open to all friends and supporters of the School, so please feel free to join us.  Additional sponsorship forms are available if desired, although not required.

We hope that the weather will be good enough for us to have a barbecue, after the walk, at the site near the Rangers hut.  It will be a bring-and-share style meal, so speak to Suzanne Simpson for a list of what is needed.  Please do get on board with this as we will all need a good meal to restore us after our walks!

Obviously, we cannot control the weather so do make sure to pack waterproofs, warm clothes, sun hats and drinks.  Sturdy footwear is recommended, although the easier route should be passable by buggies.  The walk will go ahead unless there is severe weather forecast.  Check with Lizzie if in doubt.
