90 people took part in the Wizzer Walk Sunday November 27th.

(29/11/2011 @ 11:01:00)

The West Somerset Railway Walk , also known as the ‘Wizzer Walk’ was blessed with brilliant sunshine and moderate temperatures throughout most of the day .

90 walkers took part in the ten mile sponsored walk starting from Williton and finishing at Bishops Lydeard station.



Participants  enjoyed excellent hospitality at all the Stations on the route and the walkers were able to enjoy the stunning scenery  of the West Somerset Railway in the late Autumn sunshine.


A number of walkers hearing of the favourable weather forecasts for Sunday took the spontaneous decision to take part in the walk and register on the day swelling the number of participants to 90!

Organisers Mike Webber and Ian Coleby were delighted with the numbers of walkers participating and how it all went to plan on the day and look forward to receiving the sponsorship money in due course.


The organisers wish to thank all those volunteers who took part during the day in the various departments to make the Wizzer Walk an outstanding success , to all the walkers participating and lastly to those sponsoring them.  The deadline for receiving the sponsorship money is the at end of February 2012 and cheques should be sent payable to the WSSRT and addressed to the West Somerset Railway Walk, Bishops Lydeard Station,      Bishops Lydeard, Taunton, TA4 3BX.      

In summary, there was good walking and good weather on the Wizzer !
