Every month for three decades, women of the Harpenden Village WI have got together for a walk around Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

The 360th walk was about five miles though woodland and ended after a couple of hours at The Country Bumpkin café near Tewin.

Participants enjoyed congratulatory tea and cake.

The walking leaders over the years have been Ann Gee, Sally Lawson, Maureen Crouchley, Janet Thornhill, or Barbara Sachak.

Denise Moores, who has been attending the walks every month for eight years, said: “It was great, absolutely superb in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside.

“The walks really encourage members to enjoy the countryside and enjoy being with others - we love it.”
