Life in a Cumbrian Village

St Mary's Church, Walks

Morecambe Bay Sponsored Walk for St Mary’s Church.

On Saturday, 20th September fifty- two of us set off down the motorway to Morecambe Bay. A quick and very crowded train journey from Kents Bank to Arnside and we were at the start of our adventure across the Bay. On this occasion there were over five hundred on the walk, all raising money for a variety of very worthy causes. It was not long before we were walking across the sands out into the open Bay. A dramatic setting under a lovely sky! Time to chat with people we had never met, sharing stories and enjoying the moment. Without question the highlight was crossing the river Kent in full flow; shorter members had tide marks further up than those with longer legs, but we all survived to tell the story. Two further tributaries were crossed before we walked across the Salt Marsh to complete the adventure just as the light was fading. Thank you to all those who came on the walk and to all those who supported. Your contributions were very generous and much appreciated. We raised well over seven hundred pounds. A day full of highlights that will provide us with memories for a life time!
