we all  met up & split into 4 groups, the advance path indicating group, the 4.5 milers, the beginners & the distance kings & queens.
off we went down to the woods- to a greater or lesser extent,
no bears found but the beginners enjoyed the railway path & we were joined by mark & deirdres son & twin grand-daughters for coffees & large pan loaves [sorry scones] afterwards at the bridge bistro..
& Ali got a nice bunch of flowers for organising.
monies collected went to alzheimers.
