  1. I enjoyed the hillwalking on Sat 23rd of April- Strenuous – 6 hrs but disappointed that there was no refreshments after this walk which would have given us the opportunity to meet with the group after the long walk + climb. We did not de-register after this walk. It would have been great to meet the group.
