ON behalf of the Blackwater Valley WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) Supporters Group I would like to thank everyone who took part in our sponsored walk along the Basingstoke Canal on October 6.

We would also like to thank the News for helping to publicise the event.

This was one of the most successful walks we have had for several years. The weather was excellent and 79 people took part in the event, compared to 42 last year.

These much-needed funds will go towards helping wildlife and the environment throughout Britain and indeed the world.

If anyone would like further details about this, or about how to join the local WWF Supporters Group, they can contact me on 01252 544550.

Andrew Hill, Local WWF Volunteer, Beta Road, Farnborough.
