Walk Report

A Wednesday Womble, Wednesday 9th May 2018
12 walkers (plus one supposed leader who popped up from time to time), 13 miles - supposed leader Ron Williamson, actual leader Douglas Robinson
Thanks to Douglas volunteering at short notice to lead the walk on the ground, the Womble was able to go ahead as planned but with a reduced mileage, no visit to Bushy Park.
Perfect weather, glorious Spring colours, a picnic amongst the azaleas in full glorious bloom. a drink by the enthralling river and the usual good company ensured that what for many is a familiar walk was also one of the best.
Thanks again Douglas
Supposed leader: Ron Williamson (5 miles of walking, 7 buses, 3 trains). Seems a good idea!!)
Actual leader: Douglas Robinson
