WALK off your festive excesses with the Royston Rotary Club.

The club has arranged the next leg of its walk along the Hertfordshire Way for December 29 and 30, and will again be raising money for the fight against polio.

The 193-mile course has been split into 16 stages, the first of which took place in November. The second will begin at Willian and end at Codicote on the 29th, with the third, on the 30th, stretching from Codicote to St Albans.

Rotary organisations across the globe have been working for years to fight polio, and Royston Rotary president David Izod said: "We would love members of the individuals, families, scouts, guides, church groups, and anyone else to join us.

"Do come and walk off those extra inches, and at the same time help us eradicate for ever this crippling disease."
