Steve - The final leg

E-mail Print PDF

Steve on his first attemptAs many of you will be aware Steve was unable to complete the last day of the walk due to Cellulitus in his shins brought on by trauma. Before finally giving into the pain back in April he was walking down the hills backward so that his shins didn't hurt as much. Having missed the last day Steve felt he couldn't collect his sponsor money untill he had completed the last 45 miles, so during the 27th and 28th May he will be walking the last 45 miles, so if you see him walking between Crediton and Westonzoyland give him a wave.

We are hoping he will be back in the village around 7:30pm on Saturday. Stay tuned to keep up with his progress.

27th May

2226 : Just heard from Steve, he got as far as Tiverton today which leaves him with 36 miles to do tomorrow. His legs are causing a little discomfort but he is confident tomorrow will be a good day.

 28th May

1036 : Steve has crossed the border and is now back in Somerset.

1410 : Steve is making good progress and has just made it through Taunton. He is hoping to make Burrobridge at about 7pm and back to The Sedgmoor Inn Westonzoyland at arount 8pm.

 2000 : Steve was joined for the last 10 miles of his walk by Matt Heard and he finally made it home to the cheers  club members. A bottle of champagne was waiting which was duly sprayed over those watching. Congratulations Steve!
