Parish Walks

Rosalind & Ian Bentley write: As the winter and spring have been so wet and cold we have been unable to go out and plan any walks lately. However, we are now planning to offer a short series of walks during the summer starting on May 22nd with a Michael Pickett Memorial Walk in the Twyford area. Michael is very much missed as a loyal member of our group and we shall remember him as we walk the route he showed us and eat in the pub he chose. Details to follow.
