On Saturday 18th March 2023 a group of intrepid CAFOD supporters set out on the arduous Big Lent Walk from St Pius X Church in Merrow to the heights of Newlands Corner and back, a total distance of over 6km. For once the BBC weather App was totally wrong and cleared to a dry morning. Inspired by Monica Rowden, who so far has walked in excess of 180km raising approaching £700, who knows what the remaining days of Lent will bring. The walkers l-r were Steve Rowden, Jan Gutowski, Maria Bonnici, Monica Rowden, Judith Combes, Sarah Style, Michael Combes and CAFOD’s Jenny Finlayson.
