Grahame Trudgill has been a Rotary member for nearly 10 years. He knew that the Rotary Club of Burnley Pendleside (pictured) had been doing an annual walk around the Barley area for a long time. But after noticing that this walk hadn't happened for a few years he decided to come up with something a little different to raise funds for charity. Five years later... Grahame is still the chief-organiser of Pendle Pub Walk, and a past president (2011-2012) of The Rotary Club of Burnley Pendleside.
