Under 60s walk at Grafham Water – April 2022

Grafham Water is just a few short miles from Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire. It’s England’s third-largest reservoir and can be found nestled in 1500 acres of beautiful countryside.

The ever-active U-60 Group organised a walk there on Sunday 3rd April. We had 14 people and 5 dogs, and one dedicated couple even drove 140 miles to join us!!

It was great to meet everyone and chat as we navigated the paths around the lake. Most of us went the full 10 miles (22k steps) around. We were to meet up with the smaller group that started out in the other direction for a shorter walk, but that didn’t quite work out. Nevertheless, we all had someone to talk to, the dogs had a paddle (see photo), and nobody fell in! Thank you to Helen Armstrong for stepping in to organise the event, and to Steve Abraham for volunteering to set up another walk in early summer or autumn (look out for news of that!), and for writing most of this.

Important note: Steve tested positive for Covid on Monday morning, but nobody else from the walk got Covid, which is further indication that going for a walk with friends is a great thing to do!
