A massive ‘WELL DONE’ to the intrepid 11 Wyrley folk who walked up Ben Nevis yesterday in appalling conditions. From 3400 feet they experienced snow up to 2 feet deep, temperatures of – 5 and winds up to 70 mph BUT teamwork and determination won through. Aching bodies meant some only reached the bottom safely after 6 00 pm after starting at 9 30 a.m. The club owes them our gratitude as they raised over £6,000. Well done Matthew Edwards, Kev Ward, Nigel Crook, Annabelle Crook, Julie Pearce, Keith Hardy, Laura Millard, Mark Smallman, Sarah, Reeves, Lisa Anderson and Steve Parker.
Pictures indicating the efforts made below: –
1. Setting off from Cheslyn Hay
2. Setting off from bottom of mountain – all smiles at that point!
3. Conditions at the top
4. The Wyrley scarf raised at the top – nothing wrong with the camera as these were the conditions experienced.
5 & 6. Home safely at last!
