Ross & District Walking Group enjoyed their fifth annual summer BBQ recently. Following a short, if slightly damp, walk through the lovely countryside near The Yew Tree Inn at Peterstow, those members who walked returned to the garden at the Inn for a superb meal BBQed by others, followed by delicious desserts made by a talented member.

About seventy sat down, under shelter, for this very sociable occasion. Walk-related items brought by members were passed on to others for monetary donations. These, together with other donated money, raised £190 to be given to the Air Ambulance.

Next year, the Group will be celebrating their 40th Anniversary in various ways. This year, they would like to welcome anyone interested to join them on a local walk on Thursday August 31st. It will be about seven miles long, leaving Ross Sports Centre at Wilton at 10.00am and walking upstream along the river. More details about this walk will be available on their website shortly at, where all the other walks of this friendly group are described.
