■ The walk undertaken by Somerset West friends John Maclennan and Pat Walsh, from Lands End to John O Groats, has been completed, and after the article in Bolander (“Footing the back roads”, August 9), there was a tremendous response , and they received many messages of support. They reached John O Groats in Scotland on day 76, on August 10, arriving on rather a rainy day, but nothing could damper their sense of achievement. Their walk was a fundraiser for Somerset West Village Garden and the Karoo Foundation, and anyone who would still like to contribute, can visit their Facebook page. Pictured above are Pat, left, and John, at the iconic signpost.
