Our Centre walk on Sunday 3rd December was from Coughton Court. Twenty one walkers enjoyed a bracing walk on a fresh morning and our photo shows the group queuing to negotiate a small ford on the route. All crossed safely and returned to a busy Coughton where Christmas festivities were being held. Our next walk on 7th January is from the Cheswick Green Inn (Miller & Carter) in Shirley and will take in some of the local Green Belt now earmarked for housing.
Our annual fund raising walk took place on Sunday 1st October. With heavy rain forecast earlier in the week and rain overnight the turn out was down on previous years, but 12 walkers took part, with half completing the normal length morning walk, but paying more for the privilege. A small but elite group of 4 walkers completed the 9 miles from Baddesley Clinton to Dorridge Park and back. They are pictured during a lunch stop in the middle of a windy Dorridge Park, along with our indispensable back up driver Barry Jones.
The next walk on 5th November is from Earlswood Craft Centre, with the cafe open at 9.00 a.m. for those who want breakfast!
