Sunday 15th October 2017

Newbiggin Recreation are organising a ramble this year to support this worthy cause.  On Sunday afternoon 15th October we’ll walk along Crowdundle Beck to Acorn Bank café for a rest and refreshments before walking back.  We hope many residents, friends and relatives will join us for exercise, lovely scenery and social chat along the way.
Assemble at Newbiggin Reading Room at 1.45pm where we ask that each family make a donation of £10 to Children in Need.  All proceeds from this event will be donated and we can raise even more money if you’re willing to get sponsored.  To find out more about the Countryfile Ramble click here.
We hope for fine weather, but expect the grass to be long and wet, with mud in some places.  Dogs are welcome on a lead, except inside the café.  There are no stiles on the route.
In the spirit of Pudsey Bear we invite the young at heart (of any age) to bring their own bear on the ramble.  Other soft toys are also welcome.
