Congratulations to everyone who completed the Cotswold way walks!

We completed the whole Cotswold way over a series of Sunday walks in the last couple of years.  Taking in a wide range of countryside, stunning views and the inevitable range of weather, this has been one of the highlights of the programme.

Other long distance paths on the programme have included the Whitmore Way and Diamond Way.


Every programme contains at least one weekend trip away.  The weekend in Exmoor allowed us to go futher afield.  The accommodation was excellent with some lovely walks.  We have never walked up a valley with so many fords to cross.   The crossings were made all the more interesting due to the rain that fell over the weekend!
Every year we aim to visit some of the best places to view some of natures best shows.  The daffodil walk was particular special this year followed a month later by a glorious carpet of bluebells.
