A total of 12 members for today’s walk, including 3 new ladies and a new gentlemen. Nice to meet up all and hope to see you again soon.

However, the recent snow and rain had left some of the going slippy underfoot, and a farmer had recently ploughed his field but not flattened the path across this field, so the going was very rough ground.
