2/2018 - LONDON TO OXFORD PILGRIMAGE ROUTE - "Thank you for an enjoyable evening telling us about your walk from London to Oxford. The ladies are always amazed at the miles you walk and the boots you wear out over time. Your photographs are always a pleasure to see making us forget that at the moment the fields are not very green. I shall certainly ask you to come back." BH
"Dutch Bulb Cruise - Thank you for coming to our club at such notice after a speaker cancelled and secondly for a very entertaining talk. It was certainly a whistle stop tour for you but you managed to take some really remarkable pictures. I am sure the ladies who have not been to Keukenof Gardens in Holland, will be tempted to do so now. We look forward to seeing you in September talking about your walk to Assisi."BH
“CATHARS WAY - Thank you for visiting our club last Wednesday evening. We did enjoy your illustrated talk about the Cathars Way - 180 miles in southern France. The pictures were lovely and your comments were interesting and funny! At least you don't have a lot of dirty washing to take back home with you! I will be in touch eith you again to see and hear some more walking travels. FW
