Syston's Easter walk

Dorothy Hutchinson writes

Easter monday dawned fair and warm, ideal conditions for Syston's traditional Easter walk. Once assembled, Trevor and Stephen soon had us organised for a circular stroll taking in Barkby and Beeby. Larks singing, crops growing, everywhere fresh spring green,  no stiles – a bonus for stiff knees and hips, and good conversation.

What could be better! Well – a coffee break could and as Beeby church appeared, we were delighted to find it open ( it's not in regular use for worship now) and thankfully we took it it over for a break. Trevor couldn't resist a go at the organ, and with Stephen pumping the bellows we gave a hearty rendering of "Lo in the grave he lay".

Needless to say we ended at the local hostely where we were joined by the non walking group for a welcome feast. What a lovely way to celebrate Easter. Why not try it!
