The sun shone and it was warm, hooray...... What a great walk we had, 23 intrepid walkers and their assorted dogs, including Serge, a NWESSR dog who lives in France, made strides across the bay in aid of NWESSR. There were over 200 walkers in total, and we were in very safe hands, as one of the other charities taking part was Bay Rescue.
Our Guide Cedric Robinson, led us on a different route between his carefully planned out laurel branches. Our dogs were bounding around thoroughly enjoying the freedom of the sands, whilst walkers could drink in the beautiful scenery all around. We were even treated to a rainbow, but without any rain.
The River Kent was somewhere between knee and thigh deep depending how tall you were, it is great fun wading across en-masse. Most dogs swam, some got a lift from their owners. The walk this year required us to cross the river twice more, before emerging on to lovely springy grass, to lead us to the end of the walk at Kents Bank Station.
Our thanks go to Cedric Robinson for being our Guide, Eric Taylor for marshalling our NWESSR walkers, Rachel and Stephen Wannell and their dogs Billy and Cleo, who met us all at the end with a certificate. And of course, to all the people and their dogs who took part, and donated money to our charity, raising £183 on the day
