If you’re a retired chap who’d like to stretch your legs and enjoy good conversation, why not meet up with the village’s walking group.

The group’s been going for about 20 years, and in fact it started because the gents’ wives already had their own walking club. The men gather every Friday at 8.30 am outside Speakers’ Corner, and walk the area until 10.00 am, winding up at White Flower Café for a coffee and a chinwag. They have about 20 members, a few of whom come along purely for the social time at the café.

To find out more, contact Brian Magill (seen here wearing his captain’s hat!) via brianandglenys@windowslive.com, or just turn up on the day.
