Following last year’s very successful ACWW ‘Women Walk the World’ promotional event, eleven SEFWI walking groups decided to repeat it in April/May this year. As previously, several joined forces with other institutes and their walks ranged from strolls around their town or village to hikes across country. Interestingly, most involved coffee and cake too!
Some enjoyed fantastic weather, while others resembled drowned rats by the end of their walk. These extremes were experienced by Peasenhall & Sibton WI who took a different ‘slant’ on the idea. Although they had only two walkers, they virtually spanned the British Isles because while one lady braved the rain in Aldeburgh, the other was bathed in sunshine in Donegal, Northern Ireland!
As seen in the photos, many were accompanied by dogs and, since this year participants were requested to calculate the total number of miles walked, there was deliberation as to whether canine mileage could also be included, but it was felt that with the advantage of four legs, they would not accepted. Next year we will challenge other Federations to beat our 2018 total which was a massive 380 MILES!
A BIG THANKYOU TO ALL WHO TOOK PART TO RAISE THE PROFILE OF THE ASSOCIATED COUNTRYWOMEN OF THE WORLD.
