Another successful Walking Festival

Our fourth annual Walking Festival was another success with over 200 participants joining our guided walks over the 5 day period. New rambles including a geological Time Walk, a look at the local places and landscapes captured by famous 1930s artists John & Paul Nash and Clare Leighton, plus an introduction to Nordic walking all proved very popular.
A big thank you to our walk leaders who received much praise over the weekend. After three glorious years the rain finally caught up with us on Sunday but that did not deter the enthusiasts who joined the four walks that set off yesterday.
Next years Walking Festival runs from 5th -10th June 2012, put those dates in your diary now. And in the meantime look out for Risborough Countryside Group rambles during the year, details will appear in the Whats On section above - click on the green tab.
