Report on our walk on 19th May

A group of 10 walkers set out in sunny and warm weather for an enjoyable walk along the bank of a tranquil River Wye.   Special thanks go to the former Eaton Bishop Tree Warden, Alan Tydeman, who gave an insight to the current issues impacting on our trees, and the potential effects upon the local environment. The group returned to most welcome refreshments, kindly provided by Moe and Chrissie, and the opportunity to catch up on the main event of the day - - - the Royal Wedding

Report on our walk on 14th April

On the 14thApril, after weeks of overcast gloomy skies, the Spring sunshine at last appeared for a well-attended walk down to the dam and sculpture garden at Lane Head Farm.  Here we enjoyed a very interesting and amusing talk by Andrew on the excellent work which has been carried out over the past few years.

[In an age where planning appears to extend only to short term considerations, it is pleasing to know that the landscape in our area, is being developed for the long-term benefit of our environment and for future generations of village residents.] 

1st VILLAGE WALK - Saturday 17th MARCH

Walk details

Based on the Walking for Health initiative, the first EB Village walk and coffee morning will take place on Saturday the 17th March. Meeting at the Village Hall at 10:00hrs for a 10:15 start.

The route of our initial walk, which will take approximately one hour, will be from the Hall following the footpath down to
and around Honeymoor Common.  Then returning along the road back to the Hall where coffee and biscuits will be available.

On the route down to the common, there is just one low stile, at which point there is limited access for large dogs.  It is likely to be wet and muddy on the common so please wear appropriate footwear.  There is a steady upward gradient along the road from the common to hall.

The walk is definitely not intended to be a forced march, and it is hoped we will have our local resident experts, who can answer any questions about the recent conservation work and the flora and fauna to be found on the common.

Note: Except whilst on the common dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.

Report on our walk on 17th March

Four hardy souls braved a bitterly cold North East wind and the odd snow shower, to take part in the first EB Village walk on St Patricks day. 

Thanks to David Richards who gave a very interesting and informative talk on the conservation work, currently being carried out on Honeymoor and Littlemarsh Commons.  A future walk to Littlemarsh Common is planned, albeit later this year when the weather has warmed up a bit. 

Many hands make light work as the saying goes, so if you can spare the time volunteers are always welcome to assist with the many tasks necessary in keeping our Village Hall and Church afloat.
