Sunday afternoon 21st April Campbell Park walk led by Nita


On Sunday afternoon 21st April 7 ladies met by the Canal at the end of Campbell Park.
The car park was very busy because there was a scouting jamboree taking place in the Park. We could hear the sound of beating drums in the distance. It was very cold – not the lovely spring day we had hoped for.

We set out to walk up the left hand side of the park towards Central Milton Keynes. On the way we met hundreds of scouts and guides of all ages – all marching to the beat of the drums.
It warms ones heart to see the enthusiasm shown by all the children and leaders.

At the Centre we all headed for a warm-up in La Tour Hotel. On the 14th Floor we could see far and wide across a very noticeably “green” Milton Keynes. The trees were fresh and green but regrettably the daffodils had gone over. We enjoyed a refreshing cuppa and a sociable chat.
The walk back down the other side of the park was very slow – I think we had become so relaxed in the Hotel. Everybody said they had enjoyed their Sunday Afternoon Stroll – including one newcomer.
