5 Milers - January's Walk

Our first 5 Milers of 2019, a week later than usual to avoid New Year's Day, attracted a very large group of 26 walkers. It was led by Ann round the new section of the Tramway Trail at Calke on a day perfect for walking. The lunch venue had to be changed at the very last minute (poorly chef!!) but those who decided to eat had an excellent carvery at the Tap House in Ashby.

Putting our best feet forward

All present!!
