A welcome break from the mud of recent walks, our first walk of 2020 took us on a jaunt around the parks and streets of Cheltenham.
Fair weather greeted a group of 30 walkers and 2 dogs, meeting quite literally on Tom's front door step, to shatter the peace and tranquillity of eastern Cheltenham. After passing many beautiful homes along the way, including pausing to view the one time home of Brian Jones, he of Rolling Stones fame, we eventually arrived at the pub for lunch, where part of the group decided to make the most of the fair weather and picnic in the adjacent park.
After lunch we were treated to the delights of the posh(er) part of Cheltenham, known as Battledown, before returning to Tom's for tea and cakes.
A fun and social start to this years walk programme with many interesting and enjoyable views to admire in the parks along the way. It was also good to see and welcome, as well as many regulars, some new members and some familiar faces from further afield. Thanks Tom.
