Thank you so much to everyone who took part in our Easter raffle. Your support is vitally important and greatly appreciated.

Happy Easter!

A CHILLY start could not stop today’s Dovestone walkers!

The British climate is notoriously changeable, but this did not put of today’s Dovestone walkers.

It definitely was a chilly start to the day with some patches of snow on the hills.

Believe it or not, taking a stroll when it's cold can actually be beneficial for both your mind and body.

Walking in colder temperatures also burn more calories because your body will work harder to stay warm.

Well done walkers.
