Congratulations to Pauline Biddlecombe our BE representative and Southey bowler for completing the Milford Track in New Zealand a journey of 53.5km. She was raising money for the Visually Impaired World Bowls Championships in July 2013 at Worthing and to date has now raised £1,755. (Thanks for all those who have sponsored her).
On reaching New Zealand she had a 2 hours coach journey and 1¼ hours boat trip before starting the walk over 3 nights and 4 days, walking 6 to 8 hours a day in continuous rain as well as sunshine. It included crossing a rope bridge, wading through thigh-high ice cold water and climbing to the top of a 3,500 foot mountain taking the “Emergency Track” for the descent because of previous bad weather.
