Thursday 14th December Walk Report now with pictures

34 walkers set off from a new venue for the club namely the The Horseshoe" at Sywell .
We ordered lunch and then drove to the car park at Sywell reservoir for our traditional Christmas walk round the reservoir.
The weather was glorious for mid December and the sun shone throughout. There was some residual ice underfoot which made the going slightly tricky in places. A variety of bird life was seen on the way round.
Part way round we stopped for our traditional seasonal refreshments of mulled win and home made mince pies. If the author was of a cynical nature he would venture to suggest these account for the large turnout of walkers.
They were as always excellent.

On completion of the walk we drove back to the pub where we were joined by Ann R. Lunch proved to be of excellent quality and reasonably priced, in fact the pub is a real find. Perhaps we can find more walks from here for the future.
Our thanks go to Sue and Peter H for organising and leading the walk and for their heroic efforts in conjuring up the refreshments half way round the reservoir. Thanks also to Ian and Carna B with helping serve said refreshments.
All in all one of those golden KDRC days as shown by the pictures below. Thanks to Carna B for providing them.
