Weekly Healthy Walking with Cambridge PPF @ Wandlebury Country Park
May 23 @ 10.00am
We have an enthusiastic group of trained volunteers who lead our two, weekly Walking for Health walks at Wandlebury. The first is slightly faster while the second is more leisurely, accommodating people who are not so fit or are newcomers to the group. Each walk lasts around 30 minutes and covers about 1.5 miles. With the slower second walk, we offer a shortcut back to the base if needed. This social group meets all year round at 10am every Thursday morning, with the slower walk starting at 10.30am. Walks are well-attended, with 50-60 people joining most weeks. Teas and coffees are available afterwards. www.cambridgeppf.org/whats-on

Shirley Valentine talk with Jenny Gibbs @ Royston Methodist Church
May 23 @ 7.30pm
Jenny travelled alone to Turkey in 1993 at the age of fifty and soon found herself living in an inland mountain village, where the villagers spoke no English and still lived a traditional way of life, and where Jenny still lives for part of each year to this day. Her talk traces her adventures from leaving her English home to her arrival in her mountain village and her discovery of a completely different and fascinating way of life.
