MORE than 150 walkers who have taken part in scores of outings were invited to afternoon tea on an historic ship.

The Healthy Walks Scheme held the event on board HMS Warrior where the ship’s captain Tim Ash and deputy Lord Mayor Councillor David Horne gave a vote of thanks to the volunteer walk leaders.

Many of the guests have been members of the scheme since it began more than 10 years ago.

Healthy Walks co-ordinator Paula Day said: ‘The scheme’s success is thanks to our team of volunteers who ensure the walks are fun and safe.’

There are 11 free-to-join walks every week.
