I've been compiling statistics on the Parish Walk for nearly 30 years. Initially I was copying them from old newspaper reports now I receive them directly from SPORTident. For the first time this year I have tried to introduce an ID number for each walker but I've still got a long way to go to perfection. If you can help by telling me that "Gill" and "Gillian" are the same person or that I have given the same ID number to two different Fred Crowes then please email giving me as much information as possible. I already have some leads to follow but the more information the better. Thank you. In the meantime, enjoy the near 100,000 items of data that make up the databases.
