25 walkers took part in the first ‘Walk The West Wight’ on Sunday. The event consisted of two distances – an 11 miles route and a 22 mile route all around the beautiful West Wight taking in the coast, beaches, downs, and farmland.
The event was part of the Isle of Walking Festival and also a fund raiser for the charity that runs West Wight Sports & Community Centre. The Centre receives no local government support and is dependent on fund raising events to ensure it can continue to provide essential services to the community.
Walk The West Wight will provide much needed funds towards the Centre’s current project to extend their gym and increase the accessibility of fitness services to more members of the community.
