Exciting walk around town

Yet another busy week in Loughborough - and beyond - so I've been out and about a bit. On my travels, I'm bumped into some interesting people and had a chance to look at some familiar buildings from a new viewpoint as well as support family in their sporting achievements!

Fearon Hall is a beautiful brick-built community hall. Downstairs houses a cafe which is open most days, but I don't often get a chance to go upstairs. However, this week, I did! What a lovely big space, affording a great view of the Deeds Not Words production.

On Saturday I joined some people for a walk around town. Saw some familiar places:

And I spotted that there was some kind of public meeting taking place outside the Lloyds Bank and someone was having a great time:

As you can see it was a beautifully warm day ...

As it also was on Sunday in Lillington, when the Southampton Old Bowling Green Club played a friendly match against Lillington:

Where did that bowl end up?


And at Woodhouse Eaves on Monday for the MayDay Challenge:
