140 walkers organised by “Get Wiltshire Walking” met at the livestock market in Netherhampton and headed off to Salisbury.
The route travelled via Harnham with excellent views of the Cathedral
before entering the Cathedral Close.
From there, the group went through Elizabeth Gardens, along the Town Path and part of Broken Bridges before returning to the start point.
Lunch followed an announcement of the prize winning “Get Wiltshire Walking” organisation’s efforts to improve the wellbeing of people of all ages and abilities. The framed certificate for Shrewton will, hopefully, be on display at the Methodist Church – where the Shrewton group generally have a coffee!
There was also a prize for the best Easter Bonnet – worn throughout. The very tall sheep did not win a prize though.
Nor did Rosie who co-ordinates and often leads the Shrewton Walks.
“Get Wiltshire Walking” runs a walk in Shrewton every Tuesday morning, meeting in the Sports and Social Club car park at 9:30am. The walk takes an hour or so using many of the local footpaths and bridle ways. A trained guide ensures your safety and makes sure you don’t get lost or left behind.
Dust off your walking boots and come along on a Tuesday.
Thanks to John Berry for this report and the photos.
