DELAPRE XMAS HAT TRAIL | APPROX 3.5 MILES | NORTHANTS WALK
December 19 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm GMT
MEETING PLACE: Delapre Abbey Car Park
WALK LEADER: Julia Doherty
ABOUT THE WALK – grade: Moderate Route
This is a slightly unusual walk where we are asking all walkers to wear something christmassy. It may be a hat, flashing reindeers, perhaps you have antlers or just a sprig of misteltoe – but please join in the fun, the louder the better. I will also be asking for donations to The Helping Harry Trust and pass the bucket around (thank you).
The walk is a perfect winter walk. Previously known as the Delapre Whale Walk as the map is shaped like a whale. We will encompass a range of terrain including a brief section of the town, the lovely canal, various parks, the canoeing club, woods and the beautiful lake. Dogs and children are more than welcome to join us.
WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU
- A good torch (no head torches please as they tend to blind people!)
- Good trainers or walking shoes (and other clothes of course!).
- Hi-vis vests are now back. Please make sure you have a reflective jacket /vest/armband (essential on all winter hikes). If you don't have one, then we have plenty of spares that you can borrow for the evening.
- A drink and snacks.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No. Just bring yourself and then tell the organisers your name when you arrive. We will then check you in.
