The WVW’s May Walk & Talk will take place on Tuesday 7th May. Meet outside the Village Hall at 9:30am. The walk is just under 3 miles with one stile and some (but not too much) undulation! We’ll be heading towards Pen-y-Fan through the woods. The wildflowers, especially the bluebells, should be looking splendid. We will pass through an area of rather exotic non-native trees … perhaps a Victorian plant collector’s garden? It would be interesting to learn more from anyone who knows the background.
Sturdy footwear is advised, and dress for the weather!
As always, liquorice allsorts and mint imperials will be provided!!
For further information, ring Jane on 861974.
The Footpath Project’s Spring Village Walk on Sunday 2nd June will follow the successful format of previous village walks, but with new routes that will be revealed on the day.
These social walks are a great way to get to know your neighbours while appreciating the beautiful countryside around our village. Newcomers will be made very welcome by the regular walkers.
There will be the usual choice of a longer walk (about 5 miles or so) and an easier short walk (around 2 miles on flatter ground). Highlights of the short walk will include some spring wildflowers in local meadows, while the longer walk will be through woodland. Continue reading
