Villagers in Wilsford put their best foot forward for a special fundraiser on Friday.

Twenty residents took part in the ‘Walking with Wine’ event to raise £125 for the village hall - which is in need of a new roof.

The event, organised by local firm Wriggly Tin Wine, saw participants and their pooches walking a scenic six-mile route, followed by wine and burgers afterwards - courtesy of the wine merchants.

Sarah Whitford, founder at Wriggly Tin Wine, said: “A huge thank you to all that came along.”

She added: “We’re hoping to do more next year, with plans for another walk in April.”
