On Sunday, the 50+ Walking Group met at Kirknewton to do a circular walk. On a cold but sunny day, they set out for Hethpool, stopping at 11am for two minutes’ silence, followed by Marjorie Bell reading a poem.

Then on to Hethpool and morning coffee. The group continued towards the base of Great Heta via College Valley and the first climb of the day over to Elsdon Burn.

From there another climb to Mid Hill and then a lovely grassy path down to Westnewton. A short walk on the road brought them back to Kirknewton.
