Boxing Day Walk - Wardle Village
This walk was started 43 years ago by a Cub from Wardle Cub Pack who needed to complete his Gold Arrow by organising an outing for his Six. The leader who accompanied the Six thought it was a great idea to encourage villagers to walk off the Christmas excesses, so the following year it started as a village event and villagers have been meeting up to do the walk ever since.
