Next Ramble Saturday 20th July

Everyone  is welcome to join us for our afternoon ramble on Saturday July 20th around Whittlingham Country Park.

An easy walk for all abilities, of approximately 2mls on level footpaths, around the park and broad, with plenty of seats to rest if needed.  Could be busy, but plenty to see - wildlife (binoculars perhaps useful) and also boating activities on the broad.

Follow Norwich Centre/Ring Road/Trowse signs - keeping to right hand lane, At the roundabout by the County Hall take 4th exit right (Bracondale), then left opposite St Andrew’s Church (Whittlingham Lane). Continue along road about 1 mile then turn left into Lime Avenue Car Park after the road humps.

June Ramble

On Saturday 8th June, we had the 1st of our summer afternoon walks. The weather, however, was unseasonal with heavy rain. 

Despite this 17 intrepid walkers and 4 dogs, met at in the car park at the Stag in Thetford Forest for an enjoyable, shortened (due to inclement weather) circular walk along pretty woodland footpaths. 

Halfway along our route, an hour later than promised, the rain stopped and the sun appeared - a chance to put away the brollies! 

Time to drive to Mike and Carol’s home for a scrumptious cream tea with numerous wonderful, ‘naughty-but-nice’ cakes!

Many thanks to Mike for the walk and Carole for the tea!!
