The Mad Hatter's Walk!

This year the Warley Woods' Walk for the Woods is taking place on Saturday 2nd March and in between practising her laps around Warley Woods, Viv Cole, Warley Woods Trust Manager told welovebearwood all about the Mad Hatter's Walk.

Viv said "After the success of the Walk to Tipperary last year, we’re going for a theme again. We’d like people to come dressed as a character from Alice in Wonderland (or through the looking glass) or wearing a mad hat! There will be a prize for the maddest. We’re tying in with the theatre show this year which will be Alice – an extraordinary adventure.

There will be a special edition badge for everyone as usual and also a tea party they can join to celebrate the miles they have walked for the woods. We also believe a local band will be entertaining the walkers as they trek on, including one of their new songs 'Down the Rabbit Hole'

Of course the aim of the event is to raise money to help maintain Warley Woods and we would love to top the money raised last year of £2,250." 

Sponsor forms can be downloaded from here or you can pick them up from the shop at the Pavilion.

The only thing left for Viv to decide is what animal to dress as this year.  She wants to know if anyone in Bearwood has a walrus costume.  We're sure we can help her find one!
