WEAR SOMETHING RED LAMPORT PUB WALK | 7.8 MILES | MODERATE| NORTHANTS

August 16 @ 9:45 am - 2:00 pm BST

We are raising money and awareness for SHOUT 85258 which is a mental health text messaging service.

EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO A SEVERE WEATHER WARNING

ORDER YOUR “SHOUT 85258” T-SHIRT (ALL PROFITS GO TO THE CHARITY)

ABOUT THE WALK:

We are raising money and also awareness for the mental health service called SHOUT 85258 (a digital text messaging service which is saving lives). All we ask is that you wear something red for this walk. Even if it is just a wristband or a red baseball cap – it doesn't matter. Let's raise some awareness.

SHOUT t-shirts can be purchased here (optional).

This is a fabulous walk but be warned that there are a few stiles to cross (we need to count the stiles!). Take in some of the best views in Northamptonshire as we weave through lots of little villages and hamlets. You will step back in time as you go through the village of “Old” and we challenge you to spot the classic car in a very strange place, as well as an unusual cricket match!

We will end back at The Swan Pub where we can stop for a drink or lunch. To view their menu click here: https://www.theswanatlamport.co.uk/lamport-swan-food.html If you would like to pre-order food then please email me at julia@adventuregeek.co.uk

ROUND ROBIN QUESTION: What is your favourite/the best stately home you have ever visited?

Please arrive by 9.45 am we will set off at 10 am sharp. If this is your first AG walk, then please arrive nice and early and seek out the walk leader who will be wearing a red “walk leader” pin badge.

MEETING PLACE: Meet at The Swan Car Park.

Note: we often meet in places where there is no postcode, so we encourage you to use the What3Words app which will take you to the exact location.
