On Easter Monday a number of us gathered together outside the church to make the most of nearby walks and the lovely weather and headed out on an Easter ramble.
Headed up by an energetic teenager and a small group of youngsters we walked from Long Crendon via Notley Abbey out to Chearsley. The weather was perfect for talking and walking at a steady pace past the fields which were in full bloom; near the river, over the railway line and through some woods. Jasper the dog stole the limelight and had great fun practising his ‘I will just shake this water and mud off near these lovely people’. It’s a good job he is so cute!
It was hard to tell who was having the most fun: the fast walkers, the talkers, the exploring children or the Pastor who couldn’t resist joining the children on the wood pile.
On finding ourselves outside the pub in Chearsley for some refreshment we were a little bit early for opening time. We were not going to be put off on our quest for a cold drink , so we set off on the route back with more time to talk with friends and get to know others better, ending up in a beer garden in Crendon.
It was a really lovely chance to be together on Easter Monday morning and to enjoy the British countryside whilst getting some good exercise. Thanks LCBC for organising!
