John and Margo led a very enjoyable 5 mile walk with some splendid views from the Woolpack at Elstead, the route encompassed Bagmoor, Ockley and Elstead Commons. The going was remarkably good considering the amount of rain fall we’ve had lately. As you can see from the photos we were fortunate with the weather too, a nice dry crisp winters day
It was nice to see a good turnout of members with 18 staying on for lunch. Whilst the intention was to celebrate the New Year albeit belatedly; it also marked Southwest Surrey Walkers 10th anniversary.
Some of you will be aware that the group was formed in 2006 by Stephen Colbrook; in fact the very first SWSW walk was led from Elstead on the 1st January 2006. Although Stephen has since moved to the West Country the group continues, run by a small group of members.
