9 intrepid or foolish walkers set out on a damp and cold morning for our latest 7.2 mile walk from Broughton. We hadn’t been going for more than 10 minutes when, after crossing a ploughed field, Helen tried to clean the mud off her boots only to slip and fall, thereby becoming even muddier in the process! With light rain showers, we didn’t hang around and only made a brief stop for brunch at the half-way point. An obligatory group photo was taken with the giant fox in the background. We were no more than 100 yards from the end of the walk when Josephine tripped on a kerbstone and fell flat on her face. She had damaged a finger but more worryingly a large lump was coming up on her cheekbone which she had cut during the fall. We headed to the village pub who kindly provided us with ice to ease the swelling on Josephine’s face. It was then on to A&E at Hichingbrooke where it was confirmed that she had broken her ring finger. The facial swelling meant that Josephine’s eye was rapidly closing and she was unable to drive. Phil kindly took over at the wheel on route to hospital and when driving Josephine home. She has to return to hospital on Wednesday for a check-up and we wish her well for a speedy recovery.
