Walking is still healthy
The summer is fast approaching, and Henry and Barbara have contacted me to say there is still plenty of room to encourage more walkers to join the group. They are passionate that we all have an enjoyable time.

I am told our 4-legged family members are welcome too. The walks are fun and there is a refreshment stop built in at the end for all walkers be they 2 or 4 legged.
