  • “Moon Walk” certificate issued at the end of the walk.
  • Refreshments available.
  • Entry fee £15 per person; £5 for under 16’s.

On the evening we will be joined by the Bagpiper in South Wales – John Campbell. This creates a wonderful atmosphere, so we are very lucky to have John with us again.
