Events in Bowsden and Fenwick, our neighbours and friends, are covered in NEWSLETTERS edited by Harry Wilson & Colin Wakeling. Lowick.Live posts these on its pages as they are published as PDFs for you to open and read – in case you do not receive a copy yourself.
Yesterday, Katie and I completed this simple 2 mile walk west of the village. It was a very sociable experience considering we kept the regulation 2 metres from everyone we met – we avoided Philip on his March [twice], and several others – all taking the advice to stay healthy and walk once a day. So I thought Lowick Live could publish a series of walks, just to remind you that there are public footpaths and byways out there, just waiting for you to explore.
So here is the first – I’ve plotted it on VIEWRANGER – an excellent walker’s app which allows you to use free landscape maps as well as buying tiles from the OS – you could even download the route yourself. My apologies to Ordnance Survey for using their copyright map – but it’s not for profit, and only an extract, and these are unusual times.
All the walks will start at the war memorial, and will include notes to help you.
Please email me at Lowick Live if you have a walk you want to see included.
High Steads, Moss Hall and Ham Hall
This is an easy one to start with – turning left off the B6353 up the drive of Blackbird Cottage at the footpath sign. There are no major issues – a barbed wire behind the first stile has a plastic tube on it, and the path across the ploughed field has not been marked, so take the edge of the field round to the gate. It’s plain walking round the road to Moss Hall, then the footpath takes you over the fields to Ham Hall, back on the B6353. Beware the barbed wire 6 inches from the 2nd stile, after the former limestone quarry. If you are tall and careful you should be OK, but its a tight wire and needs some attention.
Tonight at 8.00pm we are urged to stand at our doors, windows and balconies, and applaud our NHS, and the thousands of carers who have given their skills, knowledge and hearts to saving lives as the coronavirus sweeps the UK.
Starting in Spain, this international appreciation for those who give their time, and even their lives, to protect and save, is another sign that good things can happen in times of crisis.
So stand at any door or window, and raise the roof! 8.00pm. Hear you there!
Help during the Covid-19 outbreak
We’ve refined our volunteer list to take account of current circumstances around Covid-19. This means we have a list of people who are able and willing to do some
of the following:
Deliver food from the shop
Walk the dogs
Telephone people on a regular basis and make sure they are ok
Over the next couple of days, you’ll receive a flier with information about what’s planned and telephone contact numbers for you to use if you need some help. You’ll
appreciate that we need to keep you and the volunteers safe and that, therefore, they won’t be coming into your home. If you have a broader problem, then we might
need to signpost you to one of the services that are still running and are there to help.
This volunteer led service is being applied across the three Parishes of Lowick, Bowsden and Kyloe.
If you have any queries, please don’t, hesitate to contact Jane Pannell 01289 388321 and firstname.lastname@example.org
