I know my challenge Walking for Nablus is over,  but today I walked for Nablus again but this time with a group from Witherley.

We set out from Witherley Parish Rooms at 10am and walked local footpaths from Witherley towards Ratcliffe Culey back around to Atterton village where we stopped for coffee and cake at one of the farm houses there.  A very welcome stop it was too and in my case included a change of footwear from wellington boots to walking shoes.

Then it was a walk along Atterton Lane back to the Parish Rooms for a lunch of home made soup, bread, cake and fresh fruit, plus plenty of tea and coffee.  Despite a wet and windy weather forecast it was a dry and mostly warm walk even though there were times when the wind whipped across the fields and it did rain for a short time when we were having lunch.  All in all it was a great day out and raised close to £200 for the Bishop’s Lent Appeal for Nablus.

Thank you to everyone in Witherley for making me so welcome every single time I’m there.

P.S. We walked over 12,000 steps.  Well done everyone.

Today’s main picture is of today’s walking group before we set off, but the picture below was taken in Israel on Temple Mount and shows the whole group including our guides Andre and Olga.

If you can manage to spot me in this picture you’re doing well, it took me ages to find me!  Without trying I’m hiding well.
