HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Thank you, everyone who has supported my walks this year. It’s always a pleasure when you come along. Here’s a photograph I took of Father Christmas listening intently to one young visitor to his grotto on Southbourne Green. Next year, I hope to do a Southbourne walk and introduce you to some of its fascinating history.

Do look out for a possible New Years Day walkingtalk. I’ll see what the weather forecast is like and post details at short notice …

HAVE A VERY, VERY HAPPY  CHRISTMAS!

Good wishes to you all,

Hattie 🙂
