En­tries are now open for the Ro­tary Crown Tav­ern Walk, which cel­e­brates its 40th an­niver­sary this year.

The walk is on Sun­day April 30 and is al­ways held the Sun­day be­fore the May Day Bank Hol­i­day so peo­ple can have a wel­learned rest.

With it be­ing the “Ruby” an­niver­sary this year, par­tic­i­pants are be­ing asked to wear red.

The 22-mile long walk starts at Hawsker Vil­lage Hall at 9.15am and fol­lows the old Scar­bor­ough-Whitby rail­way line, fin­ish­ing at the Crown Tav­ern in Scalby Road.

The eight-mile shorter walk starts from the Hay­burn Wyke at 11.15am and con­tin­ues along the same route.

There are tro­phies for youngest boy and girl, high­est spon­sored in­di­vid­ual and even the big­gest blis­ter!

Dogs are wel­come and there is al­ways wa­ter for them as well as re­fresh­ments for their own­ers at check­points.

Free trans­port can be pro­vided to the start of both walks – just men­tion that you re­quire this on your en­try form.

When walk­ers ar­rive back at the pub they will be given a free pint or non-al­co­holic drink and a hot dog. There will also be live mu­sic and a raf­fle.

Ev­ery penny raised by walk­ers goes to lo­cal good causes sup­ported by the walk, in­clud­ing Scar­bor­ough Dis­abled Swim­ming Group, Frame Foot­ball, Rid­ing for the Dis­abled, Men­cap, Epilepsy Ac­tion, York­shire Coast Fam­i­lies, and Ac­tion for Deaf Chil­dren, plus many more. En­try forms avail­able from the Crown Tav­ern or call Jane on 07999 839338.

Or go to­char­i­ty­ to find out more.
