Brandon

After a stormy night, only 7 intrepid walkers turned out for Karen’s 6.5 mile walk from Brandon. We made our way on a very slippery path alongside the River Little Ouse to our coffee/lunch stop at Santon Downham. From here the path improved considerably as we strolled through woods back to Brandon. The weather forecast proved to be correct and after a cloudy start, the sun came out and the wind eased. It turned out to be a nice day!

Fenland AGM @ Ferry Meadows

21 walkers, including two guests from Ely, turned out today for a 5 mile walk prior to attending the Fenland group’s AGM at Ferry Meadows. We were blessed by a lovely sunny day, if a little chilly at the start, as we walked out to the far end of the rowing lake and returned on the banks of the River Nene. The AGM went well with a few people suggesting that they might lend a hand to share the burden of walks leading. The group Officers and committee agreed to stand again.

10 walkers turned out on Remembrance Sunday for a 9 mile walk on a beautiful sunny day. We stopped at 11:00 for a 2 minute silence followed by a coffee break. It was muddy through Castor Hanglands but not as bad as it might have been.
