Walk from Aston Flamville

Donkey Lane Cafe

Over the last few weeks, as the number of people who can meet outdoors has increased, a few people have organised themselves into mini groups. It can now be as many as six with appropriate distancing. The particular group here were lead by Graham H. Their walk was circular of about 5 miles from Aston Flamville to Sapcote, then South to Sharnford and from there back to the start on the Leicestershire Round. The weather was not kind but on the way out of Sapcote , on the bridleway known as Donkey Lane, appeared this new bijou shed stocked with veg, various cakes, marmalade possibly jams and cold drinks. No it wasn’t a mirage. Cakes were bought and enjoyed as they put their money in the honesty box. It isn’t continually manned –although customers are probably on computer memory near bye, and is open from 10am until 2pm each day except Tuesdays. Very enterprising of some one and a bit of a highlight in these weird times.
