A walk up Hoad today

Today the weather will be much better than a year ago when this was filmed!

Les Tallon will be there to greet us with drinks - always a hot cup of tea and a biscuit. Quote "I'm an Ulverstonian and I believe you must always put something back into the community " And sure enough Les did just this last Monday : see below!

Sure enough last Monday I met up with Les as he returned from visiting the monument - not for fun - but would you believe it: to clean all the steps to the top with a vacuum cleaner - on his own - ready for the opening over this weekend to the public starting on Good Friday and continuing Saturday , today and Easter Monday. Dedication indeed. He and his team will be found every Sunday and Bank holiday for the rest of the year: ready to raise our spirits - whatever the weather with a chat, a drink, and encouragement to climb to the top.

Maybe see you there this afternoon!

I look forward to paying him back with a drink when he visits the Stan Laurel on his 'days off'. You could do the same if you see him there!
