Well, the reflective walks ended in September for another year. So, I thought this would be a good opportunity to "reflect" (excuse the pun) on them and give a small thank you to Jackie Oakes.
The walks spanned many of our parishes, taking us all to places and corners a new with stories and ditties shared from different members of the group. A short spell off for a few words of wisdom (reflection) at a convenient place before a stroll back to the starting point.
This was the first year I have gone on any of the walks but found the small band of people to be very welcoming and interesting, dare I say an eclectic mix of folk. The make-up of the people in the group seemed to alter slightly on each walk but always very friendly and cheerful. Just what is needed (unless you have a dog of course) to encourage you to get up and go for a walk at 7 o'clock at night especially in September!
There are so many people who contribute much time and effort to the very varied activities and events in our parishes and a thanks should go to all of them. In the case of the walks they only happened because Jackie organised them, so thank you very much for that. I am sure we all look forward to another round of them next year, no pressure though!
