– The rescheduled Midnight Beach Walk will take place today (Friday).

The event was due to be held on September 30 but weather warnings for high winds and heavy rain led to the event’s postponement.

But now it is back in full force and people are encouraged to take part.

The 5km fundraiser in aid of Weston Hospicecare will start and finish in the Regent Suite 
of the Grand Pier. Registration begins at 10pm.
