Walkers are back with a vengeance
MORE than 100 intrepid ramblers took part in a walking half-marathon from Rosudgeon last month.
The Doing It For Dads walk started and finished at the Falmouth Packet Inn, raising money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association and St Raphael's Hospice in Surrey.
Matthew and Michelle Rowe, who run the pub, provided entertainment on the day with music and a barbecue.
Mr Rowe said it had been a fantastic day and that everyone had an amazing time.

Perran Downs Walkers were formed by sisters Kate Foster and Tracey Robbens and friend Jude Gardner after they had participated in the Race For Life in Penzance, the Sun Walk in Bristol and the Moon Walk in London in 2007.
From 2008 they held three half-marathons, raising £11,000 for charity.
This year after a three-year break, a new event was held in order to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association in memory of Jeff Allen, the father of two local brothers.
Money was also raised for St Raphael's Hospice in Surrey, which cared for Ms Foster and Ms Robbens' father.
Mr Rowe added: "We have already had a quiz night and auction, which has raised £3,000 and we hope to at least double that and more."
