On Saturday, 5th September, a group of 15 – 70 year olds left church to do a two hour walk in Frodsham. We were led by two highly experienced Sherpas, Ros and Jim Caldwell, who also carried out their vigorous checks and risk assessments!
We walked down Bradley Lane, past Watery Lane, and took the first footpath, and after that Kevin and I didn’t have a clue where we were, having never been in that direction before, despite living in Frodsham for 18 years! We walked through fields and over a couple of stiles until we eventually reached our summit near Kingsley. Jim, who loves nature, also did some pruning on the way! One puzzle though, half way round a taxi turned up and no-one admitted to ordering it. However, the scenery was amazing.
At the same time, Andrea Ellams led a shorter work of an hour for adults and children. Our reward for all of us was tea/coffee and cake back at church. It is a wonderful activity walking and chatting with different people and having lots of laughs. We are extremely lucky to be living in Frodsham and to have all these wonderful walks.
Alan Gerrard will be leading the next walk on Saturday, 24th October, leaving the Church car park at 2pm, so why don’t you come with us and even if you don’t walk you’ll still get coffee and cake, so it’s a win-win for everyone!
