Chudfest and Chudleigh Carnival Committee are organising a sponsored walk at Exeter Racecourse on Saturday 29 July. The walk will be conducted around the tarmac service road which runs around the inside of the racetrack. Each circuit is approximately two miles. It will commence from 9am and walkers can be sponsored by the number of laps they complete or by specific donations.
Entries can be received after 1 April. Further details, together with entry and sponsorship forms can be obtained from Alan Brunton on 01626 852714 or by post to 2 Orchard Close, Chudleigh, TQ13 0LR or by e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost of entry is £5 for those walker aged 16 and over and £2.5o for those under 16.
During 2016 Chudleigh lost town and district councillor Patricia Johnson-King and Carnival stalwart Alan Holman, both passing away in Rowcroft Hospice. This event will be held in their memory. Every penny raised through entry and sponsorship will go to Rowcroft. All expenses incurred in organising and staging the event will be met by Chudleigh Carnival Committee.
