Walk Report

Women’s Suffrage Walk, Tuesday 1st January 2019
31 walkers, 16 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
31 walkers showed up for this walk. Weather was mild and there was even some sunshine.
A few drop-outs but most stayed the course to the end. There were two joint winners for the quiz, Gail and Ian, who got three points each. Good to see a real interest in the subject from almost everyone.
