STEP­PING OUT: Mums on the move for walk in vil­lage

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - COUNTRYFILE -

MUMS stepped out for a spe­cial Mother’s Day walk in Hawkinge on Sun­day. Stephen Walker of the White Cliffs Coun­try­side Project who led the out­ing said: “We went from north to north east of the vil­lage and across the Downs, up to old Hawkinge and back past Coombe Woods. “I took some pho­to­copies of old il­lus­trated manuscripts with me which showed me­dieval women in the coun­try­side, work­ing as masons and in min­ing.” Walk­ers were able to com­pare the coun­try­side as it was then and in the present day.

The launch of the Hawkinge En­vi­ron­ment Group is be­ing held on Satur­day at 2pm, at the com­mu­nity cen­tre.
