There was a high turn-out for today’s nine mile walk. Thirty arrived for the start at the car park in Church Lane in Witley. We filled it and spread out into the road.
The route was the same as that of December 17. The leader shortened it in the afternoon so we arrived back at the car park before gridlock set in on the road as parents gathered to collect their children from the local primary school.
The newly reinstated Right of Way off Church Lane was open so we walked along that only to find the gate at the other end was locked. Fortunately, we were still nimble enough to be able to squeeze through the horizontal fence bars at the side.
Food is a favourite topic of conversation. Today there was a new topic. Someone remarked that his father stocked up with paraffin forgetting that he already had a large supply. His mother stocked up with castor sugar. He’d inherited enough to last him a lifetime. My father kept buying lime. I still have the five bags I found in his garage.
