Mid-June and drizzle for the Grippers Sponsored Walk! Undeterred, 19 stalwarts strode out at 10am on a truly beautiful walk of 8 miles across the countryside to the north of the Garniche-Puesdown Inn (just off the A40 road, ten miles south-east of Cheltenham).
The route, through the villages of Hazleton and Turkdean, took the walkers across hills and dales amid stunning farmland; sometimes testing fitness and agility. The welcome by the Garniche-Puesdown Inn will be remembered with gratitude. The delicious lunch round the large table provided a good forum for discussion and sharing anecdotes and stories of recovery.
