    Great to see this information – it is very helpful and I have noted my diary to prompt me to participate whenever I am available! Many thanks to everyone who gives their time and energy to provide us with details of all the events that are taking place on the Rowley Hills. What a wonderful place we have on our doorstep – very therapeutic and you will meet lovely people who are making a difference to our neighbourhood and confirm “the best things in life definitely are free” and available to all. New faces and all ages are very welcome – be active and healthier on the hillside!

    I am currently compiling a book of photographs (170 to be precise) on Hailstone Freebodies and Lamb farms. My family lived at Hailstone from 1924 till its sad demise in the late 1960’s.
    It makes my heart sing to see the work that you are doing to preserve Nature in the area.
