Walks in Ruishton

May 2008 saw the launch of the monthly Ruishton Health walk.

On the first walk we had 18 walkers, and it has maintained roughly that number throughout.

From the beginning, I could sense how interactive the walkers were beginning to become- they are mostly people on their own and it has opened up a new dimension to their life.

They often come back to coffee in my garden, and exchange recipes, gardening tips and arrange to meet outside the walking group.On such rural walks, we see lots of bird life and farming life within beautiful, peaceful countryside.

I plan to re-start the Ruishton Health Walks in February 2013. (Weather permitting)
