Now in its 25th year, the New Year’s Day walk has raised more than £68,000 for charity over the years.

This year, walkers raised money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and Pets As Therapy.

The walk was organised for the second time by Trevor and Carole Orchard and Mat and Sam Brown, from the Fressingfield Swan.

NO DISTANCE TOO FAR: People not only came from Fressingfield and surrounding villages but as far as Essex and Mid Norfolk.

The walkers set off on their circular ramble from the Swan at 10.15am and were rewarded with a free bowl of home-made soup and bread at the finish line.

“The weather was kind to us,” said Trevor. “It is always nice to meet lots of people, while raising as much money as we can for a good cause.”
