It was not a day conducive for walking but we carried on regardless and the weather did improve as the time went  on.

Alongside  reading from the poem, Elspeth had also arranged for some of the visitors to set up ‘Walking Books’ sessions and various people signed up for a session beforehand.

It is now nearly a year (17 November) since the group formed and we went on the first walk.  It has gone from strength to strength with Elspeth ensuring that each walk has  a main focus.  Alongside the main aims, friendships have emerged and the parameters have been extended as to how the group has developed offering a positive prospect for the future.
