Walks

Linda Harrison, who organises the Guided Health Walks starting from Faversham Library every Wednesday as well as U3A walks, has kindly agreed to lead walks for Faversham Footpaths Group too.  Members, their family and friends and those thinking of joining the Group are all welcome to take part.  There is no charge.

Our next walk will be on Sunday 17 November, meeting at 10.00am.   More details to follow.

A walk has also been arranged for Sunday 15 December.

Our previous walk 

Our previous walk took place on Sunday 20 October.

15 of us enjoyed a very pleasant circular walk, starting at Perry Wood and taking us, via Shottenden and Molash, through woods, fields and quiet country lanes.  Although the paths were pretty muddy in places, we were spared any rain during the walk. It was, in fact, a typical calm, misty autumn day.

The wet weather seemed to have brought on a profusion of toadstools and mushrooms, as can be seen from a couple of the photos below, kindly supplied by our Chair, Trevor Payne.
