THE Holsworthy Walk and Talk group chose to continue with their programmed walk at Halwill Junction following the sad announcement of the loss of Queen Elizabeth II.

Both Level 2 and Level 3 groups met at Halwill Parish Hall car park and took the route onto The Boardwalk and into Cookworthy Forest. Although Cookworthy Forest is on a smaller scale than Balmoral Forest it does have the advantage of being on our doorstep. It also has miles of paths and tracks and provides ample opportunity for quiet reflection.

The October programme has something for everyone. Now that autumn is approaching and the rains have started, some of the fields may be a bit muddy, but we always advise suitable footwear. At least the rain should begin to fill the reservoirs. Upper Tamar Lake has reduced to 20% of its total capacity with Roadford Lake not faring too well either.

If someone feels as though they would like to explore the local area, enjoy the autumnal countryside and improve their health and well-being then feel free to go along.

They walk on Mondays and Fridays. All walks start at 10.30am and are free. Membership forms are available from the volunteer walk leader prior to the start of the walk.
