Over 70 willing walkers turned out in the rain, from The Benefice of St Oswald’s Malpas with St John’s Threapwood and Holy Trinity, Bickerton and beyond, to take part in the Rector’s Ramble.
Covering almost 13 miles between them, Canon Davenport and Revd Helen Molesworth joined in fundraising fun, striding out along pathways, roads, fields and woodlands from Threapwood and from Bickerton to Malpas. Raising money for the three churches, all enjoyed the community spirit and an opportunity to create new friendships.
Delicious refreshments, welcomed everyone back to St Oswald’s Church for a well-earned rest and congratulations. Map routes and walking boots were compared, accomplishments shared and everyone applauded the organisers who confirmed the Rector’s Ramble would be taking place again next year.
“We want to thank everyone who has taken part or sponsored this wonderful community event in any way,” said Canon Ian Davenport, “we have really enjoyed it and are looking forward to doing it again in 2020.”
