Undeterred by talk of a strenuous walk, some 20 church members and friends enjoyed the traditional Christmas/ New Year walk.
This year, it was a circular route in the hills above Kimble and Ellesborough with a promise of fine views at the top. In fact, with snow on the ground, blue skies above and spectacular views over Aylesbury vale, some described it to Roger Kirk who organised it as, "the best walk ever."
Lasting under an hour and a half, it began at the large layby on the A4010 Risborough Rd between Little and Great Kimble at the junction with the Ellesborough Road and after a climb, it descended to Ellesborough Church and then across fields to the finish at Little Kimble.
The walk was followed by a soup and sweet lunch, hosted by Elaine and Kevin Hardern and £120 was raised for the Karibuni Children charity.
