A BEST dressed walking stick competition judged by mayor of West Devon John Hockridge will herald the start of a two-mile community walk in Lewdown on Saturday (September 25).

The walk through woodland and fields on the Lewtrenchard Estate, taking in part of the Baring Gold Trail, will raise money for Lewtrenchard Primary School to fund next year's beach trip and the WI group.

There will also be a treasure hunt and refreshments.

The walk starts at 2pm at St Peter's Church car park, which is also the finishing point.
