Packington Plodders did it!


We did it!! The Packington Plodders completed the Moon Walk challenge in Edinburgh on Saturday evening!  26.2 miles in under 7½ hours for all of the plodders.  Congratulations to all and thanks for the text messages and support along the way from all our friends and family.

When we arrived in Edinburgh it was belting it down with rain, but as forecast, the rain stopped at 9pm and the weather conditions for walking were perfect! Edinburgh is a beautiful city and walking along the Firth of Forth whilst the sun was rising at 4am was amazing.  Well done all.
