On July 21st we visited New Works, July 7th The Wrekin, June 16th saw us use the Wrekin Link and the Bowring Cafe, on June 2nd we walked to the Severn Hospice Open Garden day. The May 19th walk was a "hop" to Stirchley as part of Get Telford Walking, the T50 group were pleased with how the event went.
Report from Pam on the Easter Sunday walk: There were 10 participants including myself. We took 3 cars to Little Wenlock and completed the Bench Walk in the order it was designed. There was plenty of time to ponder and take in the views. It was an added bonus that two walkers each knew personally one of the bench "owners". We were back in Wellington for 4.10. Obviously the outing benefited from the excellent weather and we were able to take in the views although it was rather hazy. People seemed to enjoy the walk and surprisingly it was new to most.
We started the new year with walks from Cound, to Leegomery and Apley, and to the Ercall and Limekiln Woods, path maintenance and a walk in Arleston and litter picks at the Forest Glen. See the gallery and the routes page.
The bridge into Ercall Woods has now been repaired, thanks to all who ensured this happened.
