We have experienced some of the hottest days of the year so far…The weather for May has generally seen a welcome return to warmer, lighter days. It is the month of bluebells… photos and reports of Keele University Woods show this has been exceptional year for the flowers. Those unable to visit Keele may have noticed similar more modest displays in the woodland areas at the New Vic Theatre.
With a number of people away on holiday for our May meeting, our numbers were smaller than usual, but this did not hamper lively discussion and participation in ‘brain’ activities that included learning the words and music of ‘My Dame hath a lame, tame, crane.’ John told us about his recent trip to Istanbul, while other members contributed tales of their exploits and activities over the past month.
Walk to Chatterley Valley
Undeterred by the elements, John, Stephen and Maurice walked along the Trent and Mersey Canal on Saturday 20 May from Westport Lake Visitor Centre to Chatterley Valley. After inspecting the Artwork Golden by Wolfgang Buttress constructed on the site of the former Goldendale Ironworks, they made our way back through backstreets and byways of Tunstall. A most enjoyable first outing of the year.
