And so we have come to the end of another successful walking season. Thirty participants attended our final walk for 2019 on the traditional Whaley Abbey circuit. Yet another fine evening greeted the walkers and all were treated to a final night cuppa at walks end before we went our seperate ways for the winter. A big thank you Ann Savage for hosting the walkers and to all who brought goodies to go with the cuppa.
The collection on the last night for a local charity has so far raised €330.A big thank to all who hosted a cuppa, did guest leader but most of all to everyone who turned out to walk.
We look forward to seeing you all again in April 2020 when we commence our 18th walking season.
