The Shearwater Hotel is once again sponsoring refreshments for after the walk as well as opening at 5.30am for a full breakfast at a reduced price. Carrying on to the Shearwater after the tea and chat in the Emerald was a great way to continue the vibe and camaraderie of the event last year and we look forward to the same in 2017.
