A Casual(s) Walk Around Walton
Walton Casuals Football Club (WCFC) is at the heart of our Community – and intend to continue to be so for the foreseeable future – fully integrating our collective talents and diversity – through providing every opportunity to access high quality (Mens and Womens) football – whether by playing, watching or being educated in our Academy – and further still by representing and promoting our Community wherever we play around the country.
So the Club wanted to mark the much anticipated relaxing of the Government’s lock-down measures with a totally inclusive event that would not only acknowledge our Community’s sacrifices and resilience, but also remember those of our Community who sadly died and thank those who cared for us and continue to do so – unconditionally.
But such an event should also mark the beginning of all our future(s) – with the ability to move freely and engage with each other once again (whilst respecting social distancing) with friends, family, colleagues, customers and our heroic support services – as well as enjoying the wonderful environment that we have missed for a while.
Therefore, WCFC have organised a walk….. A Casual(s) Walk Around Walton….. a simple act of joining together (respecting social distancing) whilst taking in the special places, landmarks and historic locations that are literally within walking distance in and around Walton-on-Thames.
A specially devised 5km circuit has been mapped (attached) which allows the citizens of Walton (and others) to join in at any point along its route and at any time during the day as the circuit will be repeated – starting/finishing at our Home Ground (Elmbridge Sports Hub).
https://twitter.com/ElmbridgeBeatWe want this event to also increase awareness of the many local Walton businesses located along its route (or indeed situated anywhere within our Community) – and therefore we invite as many businesses to contact us so that we can highlight your company or service on our website prior to the event.
Equally, the event itself will provide numerous opportunities to capture rare “football selfies” in front of people’s homes, shops, pubs and other businesses throughout the day.
Confirmed “Casuals Walkers” include our Premiership winning and SkySports pundit Chairman Tony Gale and newly appointed Club President and renowned commentator Jonathan Pearce – in addition to many current and retired League Players and Internationals – who will make an appearance throughout the walk.
The Club are using this event naturally to raise critical funding to sustain all our operations (including the WCFC Foundation – launching on 3rd August) but critically important to this event is that we are sharing equally all donations raised with the local NHS Charity.
Therefore, we hope as many people and businesses will actively take part and we look forward to seeing you on the day.
We can now announce the date for the Walk as the….. 5th July 2020 ….. as the Government has issued the full program of lockdown relaxation. We are now making all the necessary arrangements with the support of local services and authorities and have received encouragement already from; St. Peter’s Hospital and Ambulance Service, Walton Police and Fire Services, major Supermarkets and Public Houses in addition to many local businesses……
Therefore, please contact us to confirm your support in anticipation of the official date – which we will announce the moment we are able to.
In the meantime – Stay Safe and a big Thank You from the Walton Casuals Football Club Board.
