2018 John Allinson Memorial Walks

TWOAT : JOHN ALLINSON Memorial Walks 2018


To set up a Sponsorship Page for our John Allinson Memorial Walk on Saturday May 26th visit our VirginMoneyGiving event page  here

and/or for the walk on Friday June 8th visit here

Led by Dick Shelley and Adrienne Elliot, this year’s sponsored walks for TWOAT are in memory of our wonderful founding president John Allinson and will pass through some of his favourite local haunts.  The walks will take place on Sat 26 May and Fri 8 June from 9.30am to 5pm and will feature a 10 mile figure of eight based on The Chequers in Walton-on-the-Hill, where we will take lunch at about 1pm. In the morning the walks will pass through some exciting new paths in the Woodland Trust Langley Vale Memorial Wood and arrive at the Headley Village Stores and Tea Rooms for delicious coffee and cakes!     In the afternoon a 5 mile loop will take in Walton Heath and Banstead Downs with a brief stop at The Sportsman, Mogador for those needing a lift back.   The full walk should be finished back in Walton by about 5pm.     It should be great fun and if you can, do bring along some friends and a memory of John to share.

Park near the village green in Walton or in The Chequers car park if you can’t find anywhere else! Assemble outside the front of the pub to register and order your lunch well before 9.30am, when we will set off.  With a target of £2000 to raise in John’s memory, each walker will be encouraged to give a £10 donation and maybe persuade some of their friends to sponsor them. If you want a form for this ask Dick or download one from www.TWOAT.org where there will also be a link to our latest on-line virginmoneygiving site.  This is a very simple and straightforward way of helping friends and relatives on your mailing list to support TWOAT and collect the gift-aid from tax-payers!  Be brave!

To participate on one or both walks, please contact Dick on 01737 817930 or dickshelley@ntlworld.com  by 19 May.
