ROTARIANS will be walking almost 200 miles to raise funds to help eliminate polio.

Members of the Royston Rotary Club have organised a sponsored walk based on the Hertfordshire Way, with proceeds going towards the fight to eradicate polio.

Jim Webb, who is organising the walk, said: "The Hertfordshire Way is some 193 miles long, so the walk has been arranged so that it will be split into 16 manageable legs, averaging 12 miles, to take place over eight weekends.

"The plan is to invite Rotary Clubs in Hertfordshire and neighbouring counties to join the walk and to encourage members of the public to join us," he said.

The first leg of the walk is scheduled for the weekend of November 28 - 29. For more information, visit www.roystonrotary.com or contact Mr Webb on 01763 838208
