US firm to sponsor Ross-on-Wye walking festival in 2017

The 2016 Ross-on-Wye Walking Festival has just ended with over 210 bookings, close to the record. Organised by the local Walkers are Welcome Group, this was the eighth running of the event and was highly successful. The weather was kind with wall-to-wall sunshine.

George Westlund, from Des Plaines, Illinois, USA has come to seven of the eight festivals. For the last two George has brought his friend Katherine Burton. Katherine runs a small business making weather protection for greyhounds who feel the intense cold of a Des Plaines winter. She was so impressed with the festival that when she heard that it is possible to sponsor a walk, she immediately decided to sponsor a walk in 2017. Thank-you, Katherine. www.hatsforhounds.com
