9 of our group came on the January walk, which was led by Ann, and took us from Ticknall village to Foremark Reservoir and back, a distance of roughly 7 miles. It was a cold, damp day but the sun did try to come out, hence the rainbow, and the terrain pretty muddy in places. However luck was on our side and the heavy rain, which had been forecast, didn't arrive until we were all safely back in our cars ready for the journey home.
For our February walk we had a good turnout of 15 group members. As this winter has been particularly wet and everywhere very muddy, this walk was chosen as the second half was on good dry paths. We all met at Breedon on a lovely bright and sunny day and walked across and around the golf course into Wilson where we picked up the Cloud trail which brought us back into Breedon again. A slightly shorter walk than usual of just 6 miles.
