GIRL Guides clubbed together to take delighted dog walkers on a charming walk around their village.

The 2nd Gosfield Guides welcomed dog walkers from across the area to join them in a choice of 3km and 5km routes, starting at the village playing field.

They asked for donations to help four of their members walk 160km of the famous Camino de Santiago medieval pilgrimage in Spain.

It will take the group eight days to complete the route.

Guide leader Gill Hillman-Crouch, leader of the unit, said: “When we have girls going away on international trips we try and support them and aid them in putting these events on.

“The girls plan and organise the day and four girls are going this year, but we try and get all the girls in the unit behind it as well.

“The trip this year costs around £1,100 for each of the girls so this helps to raise money towards that.

“We have done two dog walks in the past and a Christmas quiz in the village.”

Walkers who braved the chilly weather enjoyed a fun and social stroll with their pooches.

Gill added: “It is also about pulling the community together as well as raising awareness of what girl guiding can offer.

“Everyone who came had a brilliant time. There were hailstones and it was cold, but those who braved it enjoyed it. It was a chance to see beautiful views of Gosfield.”
