Charity walk at Cuckoo Trail

THE BEAUTIFUL Cuckoo Trail between Heathfield and Hailsham is the setting for a charity walk next month.

Let’s Go Cuckoo is the name fun family walk designed to raise money for pre-school children and local hospices. Organisers Broad Oak Pre-School say this year’s event looks set to become even bigger and better than the last.

People don’t have to be a family to take part and everyone is welcome to join in.

There are two options - four miles for the Strollers and a slightly more rigorous 10 miles for the Stompers.

The walks start and end at The Cuckoo’s Rest, Hellingly on July 10 where there will be food, drink and entertainment provided.

The Cuckoo Trail marks the track of the former railway line and provides safe and level walking and riding. All competitors receive a goodie bag and children get a free meal. The event is sponsored by Uckfield-based T R Fastenings Ltd. Details:
