CHRISTIAN AID 2015

 

CHRISTIAN AID WEEK 2015

May 10th -16th

.

CHRISTIAN AID SPONSORED WALK

.

On Saturday May 9th the Christian Aid Walk took place in the centre of Leamington Spa. The weather was glorious and the walk was enjoyed by a small group of people. Malcol Hayes, our Chair, booked people in and we walked in a figure of 8 round Victoria Park, the Pump Room Gardens and then across the Parade to the beautiful Jephson Gardens.

Thanks to Julia, Hugh, Jean, Veronica and Marjorie who were the walkers from Radford Road Church.

Everyone who walked was sponsored by friends or colleagues and we hope lots of money has been raised for Christian Aid.

The Jephson Gardens were magnificent for our sponsored walk. The art structures are fascinating and there is an abundance of wild life. One walker spotted a pair of Canada geese with their two goslings; blue tits, great tits and greenfinch were feeding at the bird seed stations; there was an abundance of blackbirds, robins and pigeons! A swan was on her nest of straw on the island in the river and a delightful nuthatch was searching for insects and grubs in a wall behind one of the many benches in the Gardens.
