Keen Abergavenny walker Keith Chammings has chosen an unusual way to mark his 70th Birthday. Not for him a short stroll to the local pub for a few celebratory drinks with some friends. No, on 11th April this year Keith leaves on an epic 1400 mile trek from Abergavenny to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain.
Keith is a regular walker with Monmouthshire Walking Festival and frequently chalks up the most miles walked by anyone during the week, so we have no doubts that he will complete his birthday challenge. Monmouthshire Walking Festival would like to wish Keith every success with this fantastic effort.
During his walk, Keith will be raising money for Longtown Mountain Rescue. If you would like to donate, Keith has a page on the Just Giving website.
