Healthy Walkers
“During a period of ill-health, I was grateful to receive a
“Get Well’
card from the Fellowship via the Welfare Team”
Why I enjoy the    Fellowship.....


Thirteen Healthy Walkers and three grandchildren met in the car park of the Moorhouse B & B (with permission), near Dallowgill. To our relief, a violent thunderstorm had cleared the air during the night but it was still a very warm morning. Sun cream and sun hats were the order of the day and we walked up the road to find the first mosaic, bluebells. After a short stop we continued on the walk which is very varied, down lanes, through a wood, over foot bridges and across fields to meet the moor which has lovely views and where heather was beginning to flower. We helped the children to spot the mosaics as we went along and eventually made our way to our lunch stop in a quarry where we were supervised by some eagle-eyed sheep. After a welcome break we continued through a ford and made our way back to our cars via lanes and more foot bridges, trying to make sure that we didn’t miss any of the twenty two mosaics although one or two alluded us. Despite being tired on our return, we felt that it had been a very enjoyable day and looked forward to refreshing drinks and showers on our return home.

The Roecliffe Ramble 28 August

Fifteen members plus our favourite, Ruby the dog, set out after some heavy rain so we avoided

the longer riverside path and instead set off along Sheaflands Lane making our way towards the road

then to follow the track to Westwick Lock.

From the lock we headed towards the River Ure where we could admire the wide lawned path leading down from Newby Hall to the river.

After a short coffee stop we retraced back along the river to re-join the track back to Roecliffe just as more heavy rain descended.

Everyone greatly enjoyed our lunch at the Royal Oak, Staveley.

Our next walk is for 25 September meeting at either Ravenscourt or Jennyfields Co-op. Both groups will walk to Ripley for lunch and stroll back.
