Stoney Stroll

Sunday 8th May

Well choosing a date for the Stoney Stroll was easy – let’s go for May, the weather should be better by then…how wrong we were!!It hasn’t rained for nearly a month but today is rained and rained and rained, well until 2pm when the walk was over!!  The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of those who braved the elements and showed up on the day.  With nearly 50 people and 9 dogs taking part in the walk we were delighted under the circumstances.Splash Cafe owner, Debbie, very kindly allowed the committee to set up camp in the cafe so everyone had a dry place to get organised before the set off.  Once pictures had been taken (thank you Penny) we were set off with the sound of an air horn borrowed from Stonehaven Golf Course.  Brollies at the ready everyone headed along the beach before settling into their own pace and completing the route.The age range for the walk was 18 months to over 60 so well done to all of those who took part – especially the kids who walked the full 5 miles!  The soaking was all worthwhile with £710 being collected on the day.Thank you to everyone who supported us and took part in the walk the torrential rain.  Fingers crossed we pick a better day next time.
