Walk­wood walk­ers make a date for 2016

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Peo­ple who walk their pets in the Walk­wood area of Bea­cons­field came up with the idea and have now put to­gether a cal­en­dar fea­tur­ing the group and their dogs.

The cal­en­dar in­cludes the names of the var­i­ous pets, with sev­eral dif­fer­ent dogs fea­tured each month.

The walk­ers are now sell­ing copies of the cal­en­dar, with all pro­ceeds be­ing do­nated to the Sto­kenchurch Dog Res­cue.

Sue Lemon, a mem­ber of the group, said: “The dog walk­ing com­mu­nity in Walk­wood has really grown over the last year or so.

“We meet new mem­bers all the time. Last year, we had a Christ­mas meal to­gether which we com­mu­ni­cated by at­tach­ing posters to trees in the area where we all walk our dogs, and we’ve even set up our own Face­book page.

“We meet up with our dogs, take them for a walk and have a chat, and it’s be­come a real com­mu­nity.”

She added: “Ear­lier this year, we were chat­ting and thought it would be a good idea to pro­duce a cal­en­dar. We al­ready had quite a few pic­tures of our dogs on the Face­book page and we made some fur­ther re­quests for any­one who wanted to be in­cluded by again post­ing no­tices on trees.

“We had a good re­sponse and we soon man­aged to get the pic­tures to­gether into a cal­en­dar which we’re all really pleased with.

“The fin­ished prod­uct con­tains pic­tures of 52 dogs which are sell­ing for £10 each. All the prof­its are go­ing to Sto­kenchurch Dog Res­cue Cen­tre, so we’re hop­ing to raise as much money as we can.”

The cal­en­dar is now com­plete and avail­able to buy. If you would like to pur­chase one email Sue at walk­wood­woods@ya­hoo. co.uk.
