Hello from Gloucester
« on: 11:06:50, 11/04/20 »
Hello all


Once all this is over I'm looking forward to walking back in the Cotswolds. Before Corona virus I took it for granted.


To stay fit I'm doing my gymnastics in the garden for now. What is everyone else doing?


Anyway nice to meet you all.

Oh for the vigour of youth!  :( Just short local walks in the near-flatlands of Cheshire and a bit of weight training for us.

It's good to stay fit to keep us healthy and sain. If I get enough interest I will run an online stretch class in the week. A class just for forum members.

Hi and welcome from the north edge of London. I'm doing local walks and looking at pictures of hills.

Welcome to the forum from the southern edge of the Lake District, Lisa.

I'm lucky enough to have some delightful country on my doorstep, so I can carry on walking pretty much as normal, except that driving to the higher fells is not allowed. Take a look at the Lakeland Lockdown thread on this forum if you wish - I'm keeping a local walking diary to help keep me sane!

Hello from Portsmouth. I was married in Hucclecote Church in the mid-60s. Always remember it, a day after Boxing Day, the church had a huge Christmas holly display inside. My wife's wedding dress train got caught on it at and the whole of the display just crashed to the ground! Very embarrassing!

Cool you should visit and walk some of the Cotswolds trails. I'm nearer Stroud than Gloucester I suppose. I know Hucclecote and will go walking up that way after lockdown  :)

Hi Lisa & welcome from the Peak District O0


Im lucky to live where I do, as I have a good selection of walks I can do from home.
Being in an area where were usually swamped with tourists, it feels strange but nice at the same time that its so quiet :)

Hi Lisa, welcome form Devon.
I liked Gloucester.  I spent my penultimate tour at RAF Innsworth on the outskirts of the city.
At time, I had a big campervan that made a great weekend base for walks in the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Brecon Beacons, Malverns and the Black Mountains.

When lockdown finishes you'll have to come up this way and we'll do the Forest of Dean. Been a while since I've been there.
