I joined my friend Phil Bray and a few members of the Parkside Christian Fellowship group, for a walk from 12:00am to 5:00am on Saturday, 23 June 2012.

After a lack of information – causing me to doubt whether the event was even going ahead until twenty minutes before the scheduled start time, we met at Phil’s house at midnight then drove to Winter Hill to begin our nighttime trek. There, it transpired that I was in fact the only member of the party with a torch or map, but no matter – once we were out of the muddy, slippy woodlands and onto the more easily-navigable roads and footpaths, it wasn’t long before the sun began to rise.
