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.
