The fourth Westbourne Walking Talk today was enormous fun.  Thank you to all of you who came along and made it memorable and enjoyable.  This was the last in a series of four September walks in Westbourne.  All of them have had excellent weather and enthusiastic participants who have listened well and made really interesting contributions too.  There will be more walking talks in Westbourne in the future.  In fact, I am planning  a Christmas themed series for December.  Keep your eyes peeled for posters and information on this site and the Walkingtalks Facebook page.
