    I just realised I am moving house next weekend, so definitely can't make the walk or the pub :-(

    Sadly I'm away that weekend, but will definitely hook up for another time, would be great to talk and get helping tips from others, not to mention some good exercise...

    Have fun!!!

    Rob, E(v)elina (sorry, nice name:)), Eva and Matthew (not so grumpy after all), it was fabulous to meet you today. Sorry I had to leave very early due to forgetting my asthma medication. First time we met, I forgot my bp medication, so you're seeing an improvement. I'm only half-joking there. Seriously though, I'll hopefully see you at the next meeting on the 26th. If the weather's nice again perhaps we do something outside again. Richmond was fantastic.

    We left the station at about 10 past eleven so really hope we didn't miss anyone. Everyone was really friendly so I'd encourage people to go to our future meetings.

    Hey Chris
    Really sorry that you had to pull out. It was a long walk - 5 hours including stops, but thoroughly enjoyable. Looking forward to seeing you next time.

    Great pics Ewelina! I can't believe you got so close to the deer!
    Hope you had a wonderful walk - I know there were a few local peeps who were hoping to join you - I don't know if they made it....?
    Glad the weather stayed fine for you, and please keep in touch. You 're welcome to visit the TeamBG office in Nottingham any time for a coffee and a chat. :)
