***EVENT UPDATE***

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, this event is unfortunately cancelled.

Here is a statement from the Guide Over Sands Trust:

 

'The Trustees of the Guide over Sands Trust are mindful of the fact that the cross bay walks are extremely popular with many people and provide an opportunity for several charities and other organisations to raise considerable funds for their causes. However, unfortunately due to the current conditions they have taken the decision to cancel all walks during the month of May and June. 

They are constantly reviewing the ongoing developments and will consider whether to extend this further. We therefore advise that anyone wishing to take part in a walk that they continue to check the website for updates.'

 

 

Our Cross Bay Walk is back! Cross Bay Walk

The popular event will take place on Sunday the 14th June this year. Participants will set off at 12.15pm from Arnside Pier, and the walkers will be guided across the sands of Morecambe Bay all the way to Kents Bank.

Always a great event whatever the weather, the route is approximately 7-8 miles long (subject to the conditions on the day!) and it may involve some wading through deep water so unfortunately it’s not suitable for those with limited mobility, wheelchairs or pushchairs. Entries (which includes a Rosemere charity t-shirt) cost £15, with children under 16 joining for just £5, and we’d love our walkers to raise as much as they can in sponsorship for Rosemere!

There will also be coaches available to transfer walkers who wish to park at Grange Station to the starting point at Arnside - they will depart at 11.00am. Places on the coaches cost £3.00 per person, and MUST be booked in advance. Well behaved dogs are welcome!

Cross Bay Walk with Blue Skies Parking in Arnside is available (although limited!) and walkers who park there will need to get themselves back to Arnside after the walk - there is a train service, and timetables can be found online. Please be aware, there is no return coach. 

If you have any queries about the event, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the charity team - you can email Area Fundraiser Julie at Julie.Hesmondhalgh@LTHTR.nhs.uk. or call on 01772 523728.
