April Walk Report

Seventeen of us braved the damp, overcast conditions of Michael and Caralyn’s walk from Tugby. The recent persistant rain had left some exceedingly muddy parts which fortunately were interspersed with long grassy stretches as we made our way via Skeffington and Rolleston back to Tugby. Well actually, not ALL of us! Two of our party […]

Our thanks to Zoe and the staff […]
