Christmas Walk and Party 2015

Over 30 members turned up for a very enjoyable but damp 14-mile walk led by Dawn Devine from Hambleden Village. At the end of the walk, the walkers were joined by a further 10 members for a festive party and hospitality laid on by Jan Sambrook and her trusty Elves, Trish, Bridget, Susan and Maureen at the village hall. Homemade soups, a hearty Ploughman’s and numerous puddings went down a treat with one and all.

Our guest speaker Paul Lawrence, seen here in the picture receiving some festive cheer from Martin, gave an overview of some of his worldly travels with supporting photos; the scenery was indeed stunning and would inspire many a walker to greater challenges.
