A saunter with a serious mission; Local news.

WALKERS are being invited to saunter around the Dearne Valley in aid of sick children. Kirkburton Parish Council chairman, Clr Steve Beresford, is leading the Billy Sweep Saunter, a four-mile route around the district on Saturday, October 19.

The walk leaves from Flockton Green Working Men''s Club at 1.30pm. The walk is named after a local well known chimney sweep by the name of William Guest, who sadly died in September 1889 trying to access clean water in a winding engine near Haigh Lane.

Everyone is welcome to join the Chairman and Councillors on this interesting circular along footpaths with some beautiful viewpoints. The route passes lots of places which give hints and clues about Flockton''s past. All proceeds to the Forget Me Not Children''s Hospice.
