Cllr Pat West, and George and Aurelia Young were amongst those who went to Appleshaw to see off Viv Slingsby and Lyn Oliver on their sponsored walk from Lands End to John o'Groats.
"These plucky ladies are raising money for Arthritis Research, and, together with their husbands, have plotted a careful route from north to south. Thanks to the generosity of friends, they are being put up for free on all the days except five. I wish them well - it is amazing what people will do to escape from my General Election campaign!"
