The Rotary Club of Keith and The Keith Explorer Scouts are once again holding their annual Fishwives Walk on Sunday 23rd September 2018.

The walk will start at 10am at Newmill Hall and will follow the path that the Fishwives walked all those years ago carrying 40lbs of fish. Minus the fish you will walk, jog or run the 11 mile route that saw the Fishwives walk to exchange their fish for mainly farm produce before reaching your destination of Buckie and District Heritage Centre for a well deserved refreshment.

If you would like to take part in the sponsored walk then please visitwww.fishwiveswalk.org.uk where you can download the application form and obtain payment details to pay the entrance fee of £10 per person (free for children under 12). The fee is to cover transport and postage costs. Please note there is an option on the form for return transport from Buckie to Newmill should you require this.

Once your completed form and payment has been received sponsorship forms will be sent out to you and although you are encouraged to raise a minimum of £20 this is not essential.
