A charity walk has seen Malpas students team up with the High Sheriff of Cheshire.

The autumn walk around the lake at Combermere Abbey, the home of Sarah Callander Beckett, will take place on Saturday, October 21, in aid of Cheshire Crimebeat with visitors having the choice of a two or four-mile journey through the estate.

It is the brainchild of a group of students from Bishop Heber High School working with Mrs Beckett.

She said: “Crimebeat is integral to the social well-being of every person living in Cheshire.

“Its work promotes positive change and encourages young people to look forward to a promising future with an attitude and mind-set that they will carry throughout their lives.”

Crimebeat supports young people in need and encourages positive citizenship in their communities.

In addition, it works alongside the Safer Schools and Young People Partnership (SSYP) to reduce anti-social behaviour by early intervention and prevention.

Helping to organise the walk are sixth-form students Victoria Black, George Cadman, Lizzie Edwards, Philippa Lane, Isabella Gregory, Izzie Lamb and Beth Wright.

The walk begins at 9.30am and finishes at 1.30pm. The latest start time is midday. Tickets cost £5 for adults, £2 for under-16s and are free for children aged three and under. A family ticket costs £12.

Dogs welcome, refreshments and car parking available on site.
