Two Doddington schoolgirls have taken on the challenge of organising this year’s Mini March for Honour in the village.

Tamar Knott and Louise Youles, both aged 15, have taken over the one mile walk as part of Tamar’s Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.

The walk, which started two years ago, is normally run by Paula Knott, Tamar’s mum, who is a member of The Royal British Legion Women’s Section Doddington and District branch. Tamar’s dad was also in the RAF and flew search and rescue helicopters.

This year’s Mini March For Honour will take place on November 3 at 10am and Tamar and Louise are hoping plenty of people will turn out to support them, paying just £1 which will go to the Royal British Legion.

The start line will be Manor Estate, Doddington and the finishing line will be The George Public House, where the Cromwell Community College pupils will be holding a raffle.

As 2012 has been such a massive sporting year, they are asking people to dig out their flags and Olympic T-shirts.

The route will also take them past the postbox which was painted gold to celebrate Doddington teenager Jonnie Peacock’s gold medal success in the T44 100m sprint.
