Members of a Sid Valley walking group are preparing to tackle their most challenging adventure to date - a gruelling trek to the top of 15 mountains in just two days.

The Red Coast Ramblers from All Saints Church are set to embark on the Welsh 3000s, which will see them scale the likes of Snowdon and Carnedd Dafydd to raise money for Sidmouth Hospiscare.

The team, which includes members from age 13 to 71, will set out at first light on Saturday, April 5, and aim to be finished by the end of Sunday.
