The fine spell of weather lasted for the ‘Bluebell Walk’ on 27 April, although the evening was fairly chilly. Sixteen members and friends turned out, some of whom were trying one of our walks for the first time. I’m glad to report that they all survived and seemed to enjoy it – at least they said they did! The route was the usual one from the Guild House down Kixley Lane and across to Elvers Green Lane before cutting up past Nappins Covert and Waterfield Farm before returning via the canal. The bluebells were well up to scratch, particularly in the woods and there seemed to be more in the hedges along the roads. These were also mainly the native English bluebells, with very few of the invading Spanish variety. See the photographs taken by one of the walkers, Brian Jones.
