Bay Search & Rescue Morecambe Bay Walk
Sunday 9th August 2015
The Bay Search and Rescue Annual Cross Morecambe Bay sponsored / fundraising walk takes place on Sunday 9th August 2015 at 1pm from Arnside to Kents Bank. Why not join the team with your family and friends for a unique day out in the fresh air on Morecambe Bay? By gaining sponsors you will help raise vital funds for the Bay Search and Rescue Team which as an independent charity relies on annual events like this to survive. The team which is made up of volunteers do not get any Government funding and this is their major fundraising event of the year.
The walk as always will be led by Cedric Robinson, the Official Queens Guide to the Sands and supported by team members from Bay Search and Rescue. Some of the team will be walking with you and will be happy to discuss their role on the Bay, and some will follow in their amphibious and all-terrain Hagglund rescue vehicles which you will have an opportunity to look around - and maybe a ride in if all that fresh air proves too much!
The walk departs from Arnside promenade and will cross the sands to Kents Bank Train Station near Grange-over-Sands, arriving a few hours later. The length of the walk varies from 6-8 miles depending on the route Cedric takes on the day through the channels (and around any quicksand obviously - which is why he is the Queens guide!). Children and anyone comfortable walking for approximately 3 to 4 hours are welcome. There are usually some channels to wade through, so be prepared to get wet. Anyone not happy to wade or who gets tired can always take a ride in the Hagglund. Dogs are more than welcome if kept under control, especially as other dogs will be there too!
This is an ideal day out - some gentle exercise all the family can join in with, lots of fresh air and a chance to say you have done something unique - The team at Bay Search and Rescue look forward to seeing you!
