Hello everyone and Happy New Year – 2019 has arrived!

Now is the perfect time to renew your connection with nature. New life is starting to emerge from it’s deep rest. The trees have dropped their leaves to make way for Spring growth. Wildlife is busy collecting food to cope with the chilly nights and frozen mornings, while the winter sun does it’s best to warm the world.

It’s also a time of year when we have to be mindful of our walking gear and terrain, so be prepared. Good footwear, layers, insulated gloves/hats and maybe a flask of something hot in your rucksack too. There is a great article with some hints and tips at this link:
