Stutton villagers wll be stepping out to boost their health this weekend.

Stutton Social Committee has organised the stroll on Sunday April 29 from the village hall to Towton, via Old London Road.

“Anybody wishing to get some fresh air and exercise in the coming weeks, please join us for a natter and perhaps a cuppa at our final destination,” said Chris Morris.

“All are welcome, families and dogs – and don’t forget to wear appropriate footwear and clothing.”

The walk is part of the NHS/Macmillans’ supported WalkingForHealth initiative and another is planned for May 20, to Hazelwood Castle, starting at 10am from the Village Hall.

Health experts say that walking is the solution to getting the nation active and can change people’s lives and health.

Stutton Social Committee has been active for the past three years and has raised thousands of pounds for local causes and Macmillans Cancer Support, and organising family activities to help support community spirit.

Highlights include the fete in June, complete with a dog show, duck race, Towton Battlefield demo and more.

Chris added: “Our activities also include race nights, wine tasting evenings, ad hoc community get-togethers in the village hall, litter picks, bulb planting, Easter and Christmas festivities and lots more that we would be proud to share with the wider audience.

“In an era when some people hardly even talk to their neighbours, Stutton is thriving and welcomes all guests with a warm heart.”

Anyone interested in Sunday’s walk should meet at the village hall at 10.55, starting out at 11am, with refreshments at the Rockingham Arms.
