£7 will go towards running the event and the remainder of your sign up fee will go to support Hearing Dogs for Deaf People

"We train clever dogs to help deaf people. To alert them to important and life-saving sounds they would otherwise miss – such as the smoke alarm, alarm clock and even a baby's cry. Being aware of these – thanks to a hearing dog – makes a real difference to deaf people’s lives, and can even save them.."  


Shenington to Shutford & Epwell

A picturesque 10miles circuit, starting at Sugarswell and off to visit RAF Edgehill, the Wellington Bomber training site during WW2. We visit Shutford, the home of plush and shag weaving, as well as a 16th century manor house, belonging to Lord & Lady Saye & Sele, parliamentarians during the Cromwellian era. Over to Epwell, or Eoppas Well. Eoppa being the King of Wessex in the 700's, where we take in a pub stop at the beautiful Chandler's Arms. Through past Shenlow Hill, supposedly the burial point of the medieval man behind the villages name sake and on for our return to Shenington.
