Amazing total! Can I say on behalf of the walkers what a great piece of organisation the walk was? You did a great job Sandra and the committee!


I heard some of ShetlandPeat's running commentary as he guided his guest around from the knab onwards - didn't realise who he was though until he introduced himself at the Gibby. Met keedle as well, nice to put faces to names!

IT was such a great day! I enojoyed the walk. Got to spend the afternoon with my nephews, was great.


Yep I was spotted with the shetland flag on the buggy at the knab...well my partrner was pushing the buggy at the time!

I wanna say a big thanks to him for doing it too especially since he has been workin so hard at work at the moment!


I didnt even die when I got in the door was well chuffed with myself! (I honestly only ever walk 5min around the corner to work).

Ah yes, back here in Lancashire now..


Got my 20 quid offa keedle, the hat was a hit, I am sooo glad, you did well piggy, I was told your gang was up the front all the time...


I have to also say thanx to Rolf from Germany. I met him on the boat and showed him to the hostel, then convinced him to come on the walk, he was the one with the dungarees, but sadly I think your eyes may have played trix on you.. it was a traditional German waist coat...


Again thanx Rolf for joining in. He is now walking around Unst, and probably very wet.


Weld done to all, it was a brilliant day, matched by folks efforts and the total raised..


I had a meal efter and that was good too, thanx big C.....


Then I don't remember much...

We hope to out thank you in next weeks Shetland times once more sponsors have come in.


Thanks again to everyone, very well done


Cheers Sandra
