Our Admin Support Worker, Mary McNaught loves a challenge and will be raising funds for FLC by undertaking a sponsored stroll across the Peak District later this Spring, starting out from Bakewell market on Monday 23 May and finishing the following day at Leek Market.  The route will take in the beautiful and varied farming landscape of Lathkill Dale, Earl Sterndale, Flash and The Roaches.  More details to follow.  Fellow walkers and sponsors very welcome!

We were blessed with glorious weather for our walk here are a few pictures from the day , we met some very generous people along the way who were keen to find out why we were taking our cow for a walk

Monthly walks are starting up again!

Dig out your walking boots – our monthly walks are starting up again.

We’re delighted to welcome Pauline Bramley to FLC.  Pauline is our new volunteer walk leader and she will be starting up our monthly walks programme at the beginning of May, ably assisted by our longstanding volunteer John Thomas.  Walks will be on Thursdays, from 1.30-2.30pm and will start from a variety of locations around the local area.  As before, we’ll be working in partnership with the Derbyshire Dales Walking for Health Scheme.  http://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/things-to-do/sports-health-activities/walking-for-health/297-walking-for-health

The first walk will be on Thursday 5 May, starting from Tideswell Dale Picnic Site carpark.  We’ll be posting details of the programme for the rest of the year towards the end of April.  We look forward to seeing friends old and new and to enjoying some good company and some lovely walks over the rest of the year.
