It rained before and after our last stroll, but not whilst we strolled, so we all enjoyed the scenery, plus we ended up listening to jazz whilst we ate. Many thanks to Toni and Mike. On Friday 10th November, we meet at 10am (note 10am) at the Griffin Inn, Pitsford, (park in the pub car park) and we will order food. We will then drive a short distance towards the reservoir, parking in the Grange Lane car park (a map will be provided). The parking fee is £2.70, so car share to save the cost. Our stroll is for 1½ miles along the reservoir and back, so 3 miles in all. There should be lots of birds to see. It is a gravel track with no stiles and is mainly flat. If you will be joining us, and to book your meal place, ring Janine and Peter Life on 01858 545722 by midday Tuesday 7th November. Menus for the Christmas meal will be available to pre-order at this stroll – the price for 3 courses including coffee is £19.50. Colin & Julia Ford.
