SILLY hats will be out in force as walkers brave freezing temperatures for the annual Whalley Walk and Silly Hat Competition.

The fun-filled event, which is in its 17th year, will take place on Tuesday, December 27th, and see a group of people burn off the Christmas over-indulgence as they take part in a six-mile circular walk in aid of The Bethany Project.

There is a prize up for grabs for the person wearing the most ridiculous hat. The group will meet at 10-15 a.m. at Whalley Bus Station, the hat judging competition will take place at 10-25 a.m. after which the walk will start at 10-30 a.m. via Whalley Golf Course. Between 11-45 a.m. and 12-15 p.m., the walkers will re-group at the Game Cock Inn, in Great Harwood, where refreshments will be served.

At 12-15 p.m., the walkers will depart via Whalley Nab and are expected to arrive back in the village at 1-30 p.m. when they will relax, eat and drink in the cafes and pubs in the area.
