Walking C2C in WW1 uniform for Help the Heros

Les, is walking Coast to Coast in WW1 uniform to raise funds for Help the Heroes

What a fantastic idea and a truly good cause - remembering the fallen and supporting today's servicemen and woman.  Three cheers for Les.  If you see him, drop a quid or two in his box, he and his charity deserves it. Good luck, Les, you are half way across the country - just another 96 miles to go!

If You Go Down To The Woods Today

A lovely sheltered place between two walls and in amongst the trees.
Its great fun watching the lambs race and play.

They soon come to an abrupt stop when they notice me!

Mum soon appears to take charge!

Accidents Do Happen!

This little lamb had a knock in the building and dislocated its leg. 
With a splint and bandage he will make a full recovery.
The pink bandage makes him very easy to spot in the field!
