ONE SMALL STEP PUB WALK - 13th JULY

For our 10th One Small Step Pub Walk, we are not charging entry fee for anyone with PWS and their immediate families (i.e, parents & siblings) – Please email Hannah@almond-pubs.co.uk to confirm your place.

How much is it for children?
This year we have changed our pricing for children of primary school age (under 11). We have taken off the £10 donation that goes straight to charity and are instead charging a more pocket-friendly £8.
Infants under 4 are free of charge; infant t-shirts are available to purchase for £5. Please contact Hannah for yours – Hannah@almond-pubs.co.uk or buy on the morning at the Fletchers Arms (sizes may be limited)

Is the route pushchair friendly?
The route was planned to be scenic and as enjoyable as possible and, as a result, is mainly off-road. There are styles, narrow/ overgrown pathways, and uneven surfaces…just to make it that little bit more challenging! The route may therefore be difficult for cyclists, wheelchair users and children in prams/ buggies (although definitely doable with some helping hands!).

If you wish to join us at a later point we suggest that the Spread Eagle or Puss in Boots would be more suitable for anyone worried about the off-road parts. There will be no charge for anyone only completing part of the walk, however, please note that all refreshments and food will need to be paid for as normal. For anyone wanting to get in the spirit, One Small Step T-shirts will be available to purchase for £5 at all of the pubs. All money from the sale of the t-shirts will go straight to the FPWR UK.

We would recommend if only completing a shorter version that it is better to complete the later sections so you get to cross the finish line and enjoy the party atmosphere at Jolly Sailor.

I still have my T-shirt from last year, can I wear this?
If you have your t-shirt from last year then please do bring it along to wear as this will save the charity significant money.

Are there vegetarian/ vegan/ gluten free items available on the day?
Yes of course! Please let us know your requirements in the sign-up form so that we can arrange for this to be available at the Puss in Boots ( You will be given a different coloured ticket so that the pub can easily see your requirements).

I am no longer able to make it, can I get my money back?
Yes of course, please just let us know so that we can arrange for your payment to be refunded. In the past we’ve found many of you have been generous when unable to attend and have donated your fee (thank you!!). If you’re unable to attend but would still like to donate your fee then please let us know as soon as you can. This way we can easily ensure the full fee goes to charity and we may be able to fill your spaces again.

Some people in the group are starting later, what should we do?
Just let us know, you can either pick up their t-shirt and meal ticket from registration or we can arrange for it to be left at a pub of your choice.

How can I get sponsors?

We’ve found the best way to fundraise is through Just Giving. You can fundraise through Just Giving in two ways.
1 – Set up your own Just Giving page. This way you’ll know how much you personally have contributed to the charity.
2 – Share our general Just Giving page between your friends and family. This saves you the job of setting it up but will make it more difficult for you to work out how much you’ve raised.
Our general Just Giving page is: https://www.justgiving.com/page/almond-pubs-osspubwalk2024

You can download a paper sponsor form by following this link and print your own or pop in to one of the pubs, where we will have them available for you to pick up.

I don’t want to pay online; can I pay cash?
Yes, please just pop in to any Almond Family Pub and speak to the manager who can sign you up and take your payment

We are delighted to be organising our 10th annual charity walk for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research UK this July. So far with our combined efforts we have raised a staggering £148,976 and we would love to continue to see this figure grow.  The research the FPWR UK finances is imperative to making the lives of those affected by Prader-Willi Syndrome more manageable.

Not only is this a wonderful day for our pubs and the local community but it’s a great chance to catch up with friends (whilst getting your steps in!) and to raise money for this important charity that is so close to our hearts.

This year’s event is on Saturday 13th July and will follow the same route as last year.

We will be starting slightly earlier this year so we can start celebrating a little earlier at the Jolly Sailor. Registration will open at 9.30am at the Fletchers Arms, ready to set off at 10.30am.

The day will include a pub pit stop at the Spread Eagle, lunch at the Puss in Boots, and finishing with a celebration party at the Jolly Sailor.

There will be a raffle, DJ, bouncy castle & more…

We really hope to see some familiar faces there again, as well as many new walkers. We would love you to invite friends and family and help us make the 10th event even more memorable!

If you have any questions at all please visit our FAQs page or contact Hannah – Hannah@almond-pubs.co.uk

We have some very exciting news to announce…

Our wonderful General Manager from the Fletchers Arms, Zac, alongside Vicki, our lovely director are quarter finalists in the BII’s Licence of the Year Awards.

This is a prestigious national award and to even be quarter finalists is a massive achievement, as it means we’re in the top 50 in the country!

We’ll keep you up to date with our progress, wish us luck 😊

As you have probably seen, the Fletchers Arms has been closed for the past eight weeks, and we have remained deliberately secretive about what to expect. Well, we can now reveal that we are once again open and the changes are… dramatic! We have rearranged the interior, relocating the bar to create a striking backdrop to the now more spacious bar lounge. Following a half a million pound investment with Robinsons, we hope you can see that the money has been well spent. The plush décor is in contrast to the wooden panelling, which creates a space that is ‘parliamentary’, yet cosy. 
Vicki said, “We wanted to create more space for our drinkers and local community, we know we’re known for our carvery but we’re a traditional pub at heart and our bar guests are as important to us as our diners. We’re absolutely delighted with the refurbishment, it’s been a long project and certainly a lot of hard work but the final result is simply stunning.”
