The walk last Wednesday (June 23rd) was a 5.5mile walk from Launde Abbey, attended by 14 walkers and led by David Hinds. Unlike previous Wednesday Walks, it was a hilly walk through the East Leicestershire countryside, but nonetheless very enjoyable.
This Wednesday, June 30th, the walk will start from the carpark at Thornton Reservoir (LE67 1AR), led by Ellie Webster. As the Reservoir car park is fairly small, it may be full, so park on the road outside or on Main Street or Merrylees Road. The walk starts at 10am and all walkers need to be registered with one of the Wednesday Walk Co-ordinators before the walk begins.
Our first walk in July is next Wednesday (July 7th) from Billesdon, led by Dave Pollard. Please park in the village centre near or outside the New Greyhound pub (LE7 9AJ), which isn’t open until 4pm on that day.
ADVANCED NOTICE: Our SUMMER PICNIC/BARBECUE in Anne Constable’s garden, Brascote, will be held on Wednesday, August 4th. All Wednesday Walkers are welcome to attend, whether walking or not. More details will follow next week.
