Truro Day and Idless Woods

9 Sep 2018 | Cornwall, Devon, Women Groups

Today was a great one here in Cornwall as the group managed to combine a walk with a look around a local event taking place in Truro. Truro meant altering our starting point for the walk but it was well worth it. Martin lead the group, consisting of Richard, Terry, Debbie, Adam, Matt, Steve, Neville and myself in and around Idless woods climbing up the famous locally known 'Forty' steps which actually consists of more than seventy. From here we entered Kenwyn Churchyard where Martin pointed out various different Commonwealth Graves from different eras....

15 Aug 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

The weather forecast for the day of this walk showed rain passing over and then a dry but cloudy day. We had some rain travelling to the start of the walk and also dry bits too but when we got to the car park for the meeting place, the rain hammered down.

A lot of us sat in our cars peeping out now and again to see if anyone had surfaced.

At the allotted start time we assembled in the car park quickly making for a wooden shelter to keep dry.

It was still raining so hard that a few people decided they did not want to get wet and so turned around and drove home, something that I can't remember ever happening before....

Women only walk at Ironbridge for The AOG

7 Aug 2018 | Annual Outdoor Gathering, Women Groups

This was the first women only walk ever held at an AOG.

For some years I have been trying to get more women involved in this yearly event but with little response so as the women only weekends in April each year are so popular we decided we would hold a women only walk on one of the days of the AOG as a bit of a trial to see if more women would attend.

The result was the largest numbers ever, with 16 women due to attend the whole event.

As happens, unfortunately nearer the time 3 had to pull out, but it was great to see the others join in and obviously enjoy the weekend....
