The day we met Will Young

18 walkers met in St Breward, near Bodmin, some new friends, some old, and some who we hadn’t seen for a while and even a visitor from Australia for our 40th anniversary walk.  John led us out of the village and we were soon on open moorland with spectacular views.  As we were making our way along a track high up on the moor I heard Rob who was at the front of the group speaking with someone, I heard Rob say ‘We are the Gay Outdoor Club’ and the reply was a little surprising from the young man he was talking with who had emerged almost from nowhere, ‘That’s great I’m gay too!’ said Will Young. For some of our walkers this was the highpoint of the walk, let alone that after pausing for a couple of photos with our newest friend ‘Will’ we set off to the highest point in Cornwall, the famously named ‘Brown Willy’, after negotiating some wide open moorland and a few boggy bogs we began the climb up the neighbouring Rough Tor where we sheltered from a little rain and the wind for lunch before tackling the climb up Brown Willy, where we hoisted the Rainbow Flag and St. Pirans Flag the flag of Cornwall, our Australian friend asked why we weren’t flying the Union Flag to a retort from everyone else simultaneously of ‘You’re in Cornwall now’
