Saturday 12th August 2017 - Perseid's Meteor walk
13 walkers took part in the Perseid Meteor
The sky was not as clear as the weather forecasters had predicted...
That said we all saw at least 3 meteors, some satellites and the rings round Saturn.
It was too cloudy to see the Andromeda Galaxy.
Harvest Moon Walk
18 walkers of all ages took part in this Harvest Moon Walk. We were fortunate to see the Harvest Moon at the start of the walk, but it quickly disappeared behind the clouds, but at least it didn't rain. The moon put in another appearance and the skies were clear at around 10pm, an hour after the walk finished.
18 walkers took part in this 5 mile walk which took in footpaths SM2, SM3 and SM4, plus stretches of the Grand Union canal. Walkers headed out to Bascote and back to the village via Pudding Bag Lane and Whitehall Farm. The weather was kind to us and the walk seemed to be well received.
Work has been done by installing a number of non slip treads on some footpath bridges.
Footpath volunteers turn out to clear fallen down tree on SM2 by the cemetery
Thanks to Andy Jack, Brian Smith and Geoff Round who cleared the fallen tree (pictured below right).
45 walkers turn out for New Years Day Walks

Years Day Walk.
There were 3 choices of distance the longest being one to Ufton and back, which was around 7 miles.
Wednesday 16th December
5 footpath volunteers halped to put down more bark chippings at two of the kissing gates on SM3 between Thorn Way and the Two Boats.
