Cropwell Bishop Members' Day

43 people, representing 10 Ramblers Groups, attended our first Members' Day event at Cropwell Bishop on 7th May. The weather became increasingly warm as we walked the 5.5 miles at a very leisurely pace, spotting the clues along the way for the competition that had been set. Prizes of OS Explorer Maps and a compass plus other items were awarded after the end of the walk. During the walk, we visited the ruin of St. Mary's Church before arriving at Colston Bassett where we had our lunch. Many of the walkers also took the chance to look around the Parish Church of St. John the Divine. The return walk was across a couple of fields before walking along the towpath of the disused Grantham Canal. Upon returning to Cropwell Bishop, we called in at the Cropwell Bishop Creamery Shop where we were treated to samples of all the cheeses and the opportunity to buy a few of them. Finally, it was time to cross the road to the Chequers Inn to award prizes, socialise, quench our thirsts and, for some, to have a very enjoyable meal. Photos from the day plus lots of other news can be seen on our Facebook page –
