Thursday 25th january Walk Report.

22 walkers assembled in the car park of the Wharf Inn at Welford on an almost spring like morning which made a change from the recent rain and strong winds.

A minutes silence was led by Julie S to mark the sad passing of Hugh B and John S who were both members of the club.

We walked up through the village and onto a hard track for a short distance before walking on a number of field edges which following the recent rains exhibited a high degree of squelchiness.

On cresting a rise a superb view down to the canal was observed.

On joining the canal towpath we headed in the direction of Leicester. During our banana break an appeal for walk leaders to fill gaps in the Thursday calendar was made by Rosemary W.
This was followed by an impromptu rendition of " Happy Birthday" in honour of Julie S's birthday.

The canal was followed via the Welford Arm back to the pub where we were joined for lunch by Ann R.
The Wharf provides roast dinners at very reasonable prices and the beef was much favoured by the group.
Thanks to John A for leading the walk and to Julie S for acting as back marker on a really nice walk.
