Sunday 14th May. There are many advantages to being in the Cotswolds, sharing and enjoying it amongst 17 friends and a beautiful shaggy dog comes as close to perfection as one can imagine. Some came from as far as Chester, Leicester and Cardiff, (thanks fellas). These events are an opportunity to catch up on news with old friends and also meet a diverse set of new ones. This walk was no exception. Our wonderful coordinator, Mr. P , has a loyal following and somehow arranged glorious sunshine for us all as we embarked from the Bell Inn at Stow-on-the-Wold for a 10.5 miles ramble through glorious country side.
