The Sponsored Walk was resurrected this year and proved both well-supported and rather sunny.
We had 137 walkers over three local routes and the unsurpassable Dorset countryside around Clayesmore could not have looked more beautiful as they all set off, fuelled by delicious bacon and egg baps, juice and coffee.
Those eager participants who had planned their day were joined by enthusiastic(!) boarders, dragged into the fray by house parents and the lure of tea and cakes upon their return.
It was a lovely event with typically Clayesmorian good feeling and warmth and it even raised some money (still being counted). Thanks to all who took part: come again next time!
