Preparing for Walking Week

We are in the final stages of checking out the routes for our first ever walking week entitled “Walking with Friends” which will run from 11th May to 17th May. The countryside round about becomes ever more glorious, from the intensity of the colour of the grass to the shiny new leaves on every branch.

One walk was being explored by a small group and they were into photographing each other – and the other was being checked over solo resulting in attention to the landscapes . . .
