Vale of White Horse Group hosted the London Blind Walkers (LBWs) in August, an annual event. Vale led two walks – a shorter and a longer – from Chilton, ending with refreshments at Chilton Garden Centre.
The LBWs walk most weeks of the year, journeying to all quarters of the compass.
In the same month Henley and Goring (HG) Ramblers had their second joint walk with Disabled Ramblers, an independent organisation.
Joan Clark of HG said “We met at Nettlebed for a 7 mile walk. I was amazed at the rough tracks that the mobility scooters and their drivers navigated with ease. At one point we were confronted with a pipe digging crew and a trench across the road. Not even that stopped us. We detoured off-road into a field then beat a path back to the road on the other side of the trench.”
