On our April stroll we had bluebells, the smell of wild garlic, rural views and good weather. Thank you to Kath and John, Launde Abbey is always a delight to visit. Our next stroll is on Friday, 10th June, from the Wharf Inn at Welford, meeting at the earlier time of 09.45am for a 10am start. The route starts through some minor streets of Welford and then west with views toward Stanford Hall and the River Avon, returning alongside the Welford Arm of the Grand Union Canal. No stiles or fields. If you would like to join us and to book a meal, please contact Elaine & Neil Hepstonstall on 01858 545685 by Tuesday 7th June. Colin & Julia Ford.
