Suffolk Group: Belstead Walk

17 Jan 2018 | Suffolk Group

Our first venture out this year was a 7 1/2 mile circular walk from Belstead near Ipswich. Robert lead a group of 11 walkers and one dog on a pleasant walk taking us along farm tracks and fields and through nature reserves on the edge of Ipswich. Highlight of the walk was a chance to have a go on a zip wire in the local park. Some members chose to have a pub lunch whilst others sat and ate their sandwiches overlooking the marina. Our walk back again took us through local nature reserves and through a tunnel under the A14....

This year we have two week long chalet trips to the Alps, with the first departing on 25th February for La Tanya and the second on 4th March for Tignes.

Ferryside in Carmarthenshire

15 Jan 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

Our first adventure of 2018 turned into a sunny affair down at the seaside at Ferryside in Carmarthenshire.

15 people assembled ready to start the New Year off in style.

Part of this walk involved a stroll along the beach which could have been done at the beginning or the end.

As it was high tide, this decision was made for us and we started off inland with the beach stroll left to the very end of the walk.

From the start, we had great views, at first over to Llansteffan and as we climbed up through a field the views increased, to further down the Towy Estuary and further west towards Laugharne and Pendine....
