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.
