Christmas lunch and ramble, 7th December
The day dawned bright and warm for this time of year and that, and the promise of mud-free paths brought 18 of us to Marston Moretaine Manor at 10am to work up an apetaite for lunch. We walked for about 6 miles around the Millenium Park, with the 1 million trees that are now nearly 20 years old and turning from saplings into trees. We passed a lake, a wind turbine and had our coffee at the visitors centre. They have a good lecture programme in the winter - I must come back again!

We got to the Manor in time for pre drinks and our wonderful Xmas lunch, our numbers doubling again and we were served a splendid meal in an extension to this beaurtiful manor.  Altogether, a lovely time was had by all. Thanks to John and Sheila for leading the walk and Nita for the organisation of the lunch.
