Easter Monday Walk • 28 March 2016

Seven of us enjoyed Hemel Meeting’s traditional Easter Monday walk on 28 March. Starting in Gadebridge Park, we traversed the fields above Piccotts End.

It was windy, and the views of the fields and hills were lovely in the early spring weather.

We came back down Dodds Lane, crossed the Leighton Buzzard Road and walked up a muddy footpath to Halsey Field, near Warners End Wood in Gadebridge.

There we were met by Chris Ridley, who has organised interest in preserving Halsey Field. She described how in summer in particular, it is full of wildflowers attracting many species of butterfly, bee and hoverfly. Shrubs do their job, too, providing nesting sites, food for birds and insect habitats. If you are interested in helping her and others with preservation activities, email Chris at chrisridleysen@gmail.com.

After posing for the picture, we set off for Gilbert’s to join others from Meeting who had gathered for tea.
