You can find local walks by checkingout www.walk4life.info. One local walk is the GoshawkTrail which was enjoyed by 22 members of the Walkingfor Health group and some faithful friends (dogs) to MayDay Farm. With the beautiful weather shining upon them,one of the highlights was the walkers seeing an adderbasking in the sun.
