For those of you who don’t yet know, Clock New Mills is a sponsored challenge to walk to twelve viewpoints around New Mills shaped (roughly!) like a clock face from where you can see (‘clock’) the town. The idea is to raise money to contribute to putting solar panels on the roof of New Mills School. As a Transition Initiative, we want to encourage low carbon and healthy fundraising: you don’t need to fly all the way to Peru to trek to Machu Picchu for this kind of thing, especially when we live in such a beautiful part of the world as it is.

Are you involved? If not, there’s just about time to get your boots on and do the twelve walks because they have to be completed by the time the clocks go back at the end of October.

And if you need any incentive other than the warm glow that comes from doing a good thing (and indeed from the calorie-busting exercise), there are prizes for most money raised, whackiest and most challenging way of doing the walks.
