Walkers have only a few days to sign up for a charity walk next weekend.

The annual sponsored Bure Valley Railway Walk takes place on April 17 and 18 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

It sees walkers trekking along a choice of a nine, six or three mile routes from Wroxham to Aylsham.

Helen Chapman, fundraising manager for Macmillan, said: “There may only be a few days left before this year's event but there's still plenty of time to register by calling the fundraising office on 01603 724369.

“If you feel like taking a stroll at the weekend, why not make every step count by taking and take part to raise money for people living with cancer?”

Each walk starts with a trip on the Bure Valley narrow gauge steam train and each participant receives a certificate once they have completed the trek.

Booking is advisable to guarantee a seat on a train, but Macmillan said it would try to accommodate any walkers who turned up on the day.
