    Please remember that on Sunday 30th October at 2.00 AM the clocks in the UK are changed back to 1.00 AM – from British Summer Time to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) until March 2012. Since they go back 1 hour, the people who forget may arrive 1 hour early for this meeting at 8 AM. I always try and remember to change my watch when I go to bed, my laptop changes automatically.

    Twenty two of us turned up for this early start (8am) walk that started with a drive to Oxfordshire. There we met with Andy, National Trust Ranger, and Nan, a local volunteer who were our guides for the day. We did get a bit of unexpected rain during the day but that could not hamper our enjoyment of this guided 8mile walk across beautiful countryside. Excellent walk and we did learn a lot about local history and also woodland management. Check out our photos from this walk – the amazing autumn colours are dancing all over these pictures!-)
