Walk for Life



Here we are promoting this year's Walk for Life. Suzanne, who arranged it last year was not able to do it again, so I asked Berriew YFC to take on the task, which they have done with anticipated splendid efficiency. The walk is on March 28th, a week next Sunday. It starts (at 11.00 am) near the Tourist Information Centre in Welshpool, and finishes at the Church House, where light refreshments will be available to welcome walkers home. Money raised is going towards Kidney Wales Foundation - half towards the national charity and half towards the local branch fund, which is to enhance the renal dialysis unit we expect to be operating at Welshpool Hospital before the end of this year. The three Berriew young farmers in the photograph are Lynne Pritchard, Nikki Hughes and Becky James. The less young non-farmer with me at the back is the Mayor of Welshpool, Councillor Anne Holloway. You can access sponsorship forms (or entry forms) from Becky on 07595918945. If you can't get her you can telephone me on 07968082891.

the Liberal Democrats' irritating habit of claiming credit for every bit of good news
- quite rightly, because we went into that first coalition with a "shopping list" of 108 items, most of which were put into practice.
