April 2017

Charity Walk - St. Austell
The 8 in 8 Challenge - Saturday 8 April 2017 - 10am

A 10 mile circular walk from Tywardreath, through Golant, Fowey, Polkerris, Polmear and returning to Tywardreath.  The aim is to visit 8 specified pubs along the route in eight hours, taking in parts of the SW coast path, estuary footpath and the Saints Way.  An accompanying quiz will require a visit to each of the pubs in order to find the answers.

The aim is to have an informal, enjoyable day with breathtaking views, a chance to visit the local pubs in the area and raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity and the Merlin MS Centre in St Austell, plus help boost the local economy!

Registration will be between 10am and 10.30am at the New Inn, Tywardreath (5-10 minutes walk from Par railway station) which will be open to provide refreshments and food.  We are asking for a donation of £10 from all participants.  A quiz sheet and route map/directions between each of the pubs will be provided.
