The 1000 mile walk through a British Spring

Have you ever thought about walking 1000 miles? Roger Morgan-Grenville did just that and for this year's Cameron Bespolka Memorial Talk he very generously gave up his time to come and tell us all about it

Hosted by Winchester College, Roger told a captive audience of 450 school children from local primary schools about what he learned about our beautiful British countryside as he walked an average of 20 miles a day for 51 days. Together with Ellen Bradley they also talked about the endangered Curlew and how Curlew Action is helping to understand and protect these birds.

It was our pleasure to host Roger and everyone who helped to make the occasion so special.

Clare Talks, Winchester Colleage

This talk was followed by a poetry competition which showed some wonderful and thoughtful observations about wildlife. Congratulations to all, especially the winners.

And in the evening Roger was good enough to share his story again with another local audience of 350 people.

We are hugely grateful to Roger, Ellen, Winchester College, especially Clare Talks, and everyone else involved in making this a day to remember.
