January 17th, 28 members met at Newbold Comyn in Leamington for a ramble. Because of the likelihood of muddy footpaths today's leaders Barbara and Phil Hammonds chose a walk that was 90% on tarmac paths around the parks of Leamington Spa. One novelty was walking through Foundry Woods and finding a "Singing for Joy" workshop in action. The group stopped and after doing some exercise joined in with the leaders singing some songs.
