Welly Walk – Building Relationships in Your Parish

There is nothing like walking together to enable conversations to happen and relationships to flourish. Where better to walk than amongst the glorious colours of God’s creation in local woods this Autumn. Thanks to Archie and William, aged 9 and 7 for this report

The Welly Walk
On the 9th October, 86 people and around 7 dogs met on a very Autumnal and sunny afternoon. It was the second Parish Welly Walk. This time we started on Puttenham Common in the Middle Car Park. Young and older people came from inside and outside our Parish.

We met to enjoy a fun walk with friends we knew and some we didn’t know. On the way we did a nature spot to find: acorns, insects, a bird box, mushrooms, berries, moss, ferns, pine cones and many more Autumn objects. The pine cones were very tricky to find! The woods were starting to become really colourful and we kicked the leaves around while we walked.

After the walk we played and had tea, coffee, cake, sweets and biscuits. While the adults chatted, the children could do leaf rubbings, make leaf people or play with their friends.

Thank you to the Parish Churches for providing the refreshments and activities, and we hope there is another walk very soon!
