We will do whatever it takes to help you live life as fully as you can


I was brought up in Torbay and my mother still lives there.My wife (Julia) and I have lived in Newquay since 1980.

 The idea for the walk came from a book by Laurie Lee 'As I Walked Out One Mid Summer Morning' A young Laurie leaves home and sets out to walk across England and then Spain. While in Spain Laurie gets caught up in the Spanish Civil War and is eventually rescued by the navy. I always wished to do something similar (not including the civil war)

So the idea is to walk out from home in Newquay and walk the SW coast path to my childhood home in Torbay,where my mother has lived since 1962.

 Starting  the walk on Monday May 2nd and walking approximately 12 miles a day, I hope to finish the journey on Saturday 28th May.  The total distance of the walk is over 300 miles.Julia will join me for the section from St Ives to Marazion and our children(Martyn and Sarah), grandchildren (Teddy and Henry) will complete some of the later sections. Friends are welcome to join me at any stage.

In recent years Julia and I have lost family and very close friends to cancer. The work of Macmillan Cancer Support is inspirational-it is hard to put a value on their support at critical times.

I have always wanted to do this walk and there are absent friends who I know would have loved this opportunity-they will be in my thoughts.
