Christmas Walks

Two groups of parishioners and friends braved the cold wind and hail storm to complete the local walks.  Group one walked via rectory lane and Drunken Pit (– the long walk 1.5 hrs).  Group two walked via Fisherton and Hemmock copse. We all had fun and enjoyed the mulled wine, hot drinks and snacks on return. (see the pictures here)
