SHORT WALK: 26 Aug 2021
The walk was very successful, with nine people taking part.
The weather was kind, so we stopped at one of the locks for a break and coffee.
We also noticed through the Wilton Brail Wild Autumn Crocuses growing that people found interesting to chat about.
After viewing Crofton from the tow path we carried on to the Swan pub for a drink and lunch, all very enjoyable with added chat and discussion.
We have added a new page - called SHORTS. This will include short stories and group features. Please take a look and feel free to send us a contribution.
