Monthly Parish Walk
Parish Walk – 21 March 2020
Parish Walk to Islingham Farm-Saturday 21st March 2020 – CANCELLED
It is with huge regret that we are cancelling tomorrow’s walk. Nicholas, our vicar, has taken advice from the NHS and they are very cautious about encouraging gatherings. The situation, of course, is changing very quickly and we will keep it under review.
This is a great disappointment to us all. These are very challenging times of course. We need to keep our spirits up, and we would encourage you to walk into the countryside on your own if you can, and are well, but please don’t try to meet up with others.
As soon as the situation changes we will be in touch. Meanwhile keep safe and well, and if you are feeling down do get in touch with us.

MEET 11AM SATURDAY, 18 JANUARY
Meet at the Parish Hall on the corner of Church Green and Murray Road.
Join us on Saturday 18th January 2020 to get the new decade started with a great walk.
This walk of just under 3 miles goes to Upnor and back by a circular route. Mostly on
footpaths, this walk reveals some of Medway’s hidden gems including Upnor Castle, the
estuary by St. Mary’s island, and woods and footpaths. We will return for hot or cold drinks, and tasty treats. Dogs on leads welcome; children under 14 must be accompanied. Please be prepared for muddy conditions after the recent rain. It will below tide but there is a stretch by the river that may be wet under foot (there is an alternative route by road) .

Walk around Manor Farm and Wainscott
Don’t we all need a break from the Christmas preparations, and we have just the thing. Join us on our shorter walk this month exploring the footpaths, streets and developments close by.
Our walk is under 2.5 miles and explores the semi-rural area around Manor Farm, and the changes either under way, or under discussion, before moving on to Wainscott recreation ground, where there are swings for the younger ones, and the option of the outdoor gym for those of us who’d like to burn off a few calories before Christmas. We return to All Saints church for hot and cold drinks and seasonal tasty treats.There are no steep climbs on this walk, and we will be using footpaths or quiet streets nearly all the time.Please be prepared for muddy conditions after the recent rain. Dogs on leads welcome; children under 14 must be accompanied.
Feel free to wear your Santa hat or reindeer antlers!
All welcome. Please feel free to invite family, friends and neighbours.
ALL SAINTS AND UPNOR CHURCH WALK
To Haven Street Wood
16 November 2019
It was a perfectly dry day for our fabulous walk to Haven Street Wood. Even with the option of a shorter walk, many people chose the muddier and longer full route, braving three stiles and a fallen tree. We are delighted to say no-one slipped and all were accounted for on arrival back. Those who chose the gentler option still saw some superb autumn colours and got first dibs on the treats table. The egg muffins and cheese scones were particularly popular. We have gained a pair of very small wellies which we hope to re-unite with their owner before it rains again. This owner could be the one we spied stretched out fast asleep on a pew during refreshments.
Many thanks to those who brought treats for the table, those who took photos (do share them on our All Saints Frindsbury events Facebook page), and to Jane and Nan for tail-walking.
Our next walk is on Saturday 21st December with more details to follow. However, don’t forget the Santa hats and Rudolf antlers for our Christmas special!
