Walk Cotswolds with us…

FARM Womens Club is going walking in the Cotswolds on Oct 11 and 12 this year and will be staying at the White Harte Royal Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh for two nights.

Why not come and join us? The trip is open to all Farmlife readers.

As usual we will all meet for dinner on Friday evening to get to know one another and catch up with old friends.

On Saturday two walks are planned, the morning one is about six miles to Longborough and back to town for lunch. In the afternoon a four-mile walk is planned towards Evenlode. Anyone who would prefer to cycle around the area can hire a bicycle from the railway station, maps are available.

On Sunday morning a five-and-a-half mile walk is planned stopping at Batsford Arboretum, where we shall have a guided tour before lunch in the Apple Store Tea Room.
