Fun Walk, Sunday 12 July 2015, Barleylands Farm, Crays Hill
The Polly Parrot appeal is taking part in the local Fun Walk, which is held each year to raise money for charities and good causes.
There are two walks to choose from. One is 3 miles and takes in a circular public walk around Crays Hill, including a couple of stiles. The second is a shorter walk within Barleylands Farm and is suitable for families, toddlers and the disabled. Both start and finish at Barleylands Farm.
There is music, a BBQ, other refreshments, and a large barn for stalls - to raise awareness as well as money.
The event starts at 12pm with the opening of the BBQ, with the walks starting at 1pm. Finish time is around 3pm.

It is a tough event as you'll have to train to a level that ensures you can complete the 100 miles in eight and a half hours and you'll be sharing the road with 25,000 other cyclists.
